Caroline has styled several homes of friends and friends of friends whilst Michelle has a knack for discovering finds. French and Belgium respectively they have both lived in London for over 25 years. Following on from professional careers in Branding and Executive Search, they were eager to start a business together and felt there was a gap in the market for excellent services that were reasonably priced; Almost essential was born.
