Hemme was founded by Jessica Grice and Mandy Milks. Here is a little more about them:
Mandy: A very dark, grey-ed out olive green — less kelly, more forest (can you tell by the branding?) I painted my kitchen cabinets that colour, so I am committed.
Jess: Blues, soft pinks, greens, blacks, whites. Simply. cannot. choose.
Favourite part about working for Hemme:
Jess: I love learning every day and being part of a team that is so incredibly supportive of each other. I feel lucky to be a woman surrounded by fiercely dedicated and talented people.
Mandy: Working with a partner that has strengths where I don't, and lets me shine where I do. It's truly a blend of superpowers that makes for a great partnership. I also love that we created a place that supports working mothers!
Favourite part about living in Toronto:
Mandy: The mix of homes in the west end neighbourhoods. My idea of cardio is walking my favourite streets and peeking in windows, imagining what I would do to the space if I lived there. A touch creepy, but maybe all those people just need to get Hemme drapes already!
Jess: It's the food scene for me. You really have to try hard to get a bad meal! Going on long walks/bike rides by the lakeshore or downtown to find a cool spot...my perfect weekend afternoon spent with family and friends.
What surprised you most about 2020 (besides the obvious)?:
Mandy: That I am capable of more than I thought was possible for myself. And that I am really good at making pillows!
