Store History

  • Founded by: Atlanta Bartlett and Dave Coote
  • Headquarters: UK

Pale & Interesting is a life-style shopping experience. Inside this site you will find furniture, accessories, jewellery and books all chosen or designed by Atlanta and Dave, inspired by their love of the functional, beautiful and out-of-the-ordinary. Their philosophy is all about mixing it up, teaming old with new, contrasting rough with smooth and pairing femininity with utility.

As much as we love color, there's something intriguing about a simple palette of pales. Instead of the loud statement of brights, you get the subtle song of texture and detail. With that in mind, husband and wife team Dave Coote and Atlanta Bartlett bring their signature shabby chic style to their own shop.

Pale & Interesting is a boutique that highlights covetable home goods from across the pond. From worn cupboards to fuzzy mohair throws and mercury glass pendants, a warm and welcoming home comes from things that invite touch. With Atlanta's stylist experience and Dave's eye for furniture design, their easy and distressed look translates to create wonderfully collected spaces. As you browse the site, you may recognize some pieces; much of the inventory can be seen in the pair's style book of the same name. Whether you're a pale perfectionist or just looking to add some interest to a room, Pale & Interesting is worth a peek.
