We’re Myles and Daniel...
We live in South East London and have been together 21 years. We have two dogs, Edward and Arthur, and have renovated two houses in the area (which sparked our interest and love of beautiful things for the home!).
Back in 2016 I set up a homeware and gift website whilst I was still teaching, running it in my spare time from the attic (hence Myles From Home). In early 2019 I decided teaching, whilst hugely rewarding, was beginning to make me feel a bit burnt out. I followed instinct over logic and sensibleness and handed in my notice - not really knowing what was next on the list!
I have spent nearly 20 years working as a conductor and pianist (alongside my other passion of marathon running!) on musicals in the West End including Disney's Aladdin, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Cats and Hugh Jackman's world tour and was feeling time for a new adventure to work alongside my career as a musician.
We saw a post on a local forum advertising a pop-up space in East Dulwich, and both of us felt instinctively it was the right thing to do. We opened initially for the 5 weeks leading up to Christmas, selling new and vintage items that we love. That’s really our only condition when choosing products: we have to love them, and even if we don’t have them in our home, we would if there was room! When the landlady of the pop-up space offered us the opportunity to extend we felt it was an organic progression of where we were.
We love the fact that if you come into the shop or shop with us online, it's one of us that will serve you or pack your parcel. We love getting to know our customers in the shop and really enjoy engaging and getting to know our online customers through email and social media. It's always lovely seeing photos of products in their new homes.
We are new to this and really welcome feedback. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please get in touch using the form in the ‘Find Us’ section. We’d love to hear from you!
Thanks for visiting the website. We’re sure you'll find a self-gift you'll love and hope you’ll find something you love that will make your home that extra bit more special.
Myles & Daniel
