Frazerhurst celebrates birthday month with annual sale

It’s a great time to redecorate as interior trends are very open and broad-reaching. No longer are you forced to pair orange with brown like in the 70s, baby-pink with hard-grey like the 80s and blue with terracotta like the 90s.

Frazerhurst showroom consultant of the last three years, Tracey Harvey has this advice and much more after graduating from an interior design course earlier this year. Tracey has over 20 years’ experience in the fashion industry so she is no stranger to fabrics, colour and pattern. Combined with a passion for good customer service and a strong history of decorating her own homes, she is well-qualified to assist the many customers who pass through Frazerhurst’s doors.

Speaking of doors, Frazerhurst first opened 34 years ago this month. As a company, Frazerhurst has lasted and grown in strength due to its ability to adapt and respond to new trends and ideas while continuing to move forward to better serve their clients.

Being a local business for this many years has given Frazerhurst an advantage. They understand how Northland weather impacts on window furnishings - what works and what doesn’t.

Northland has a unique style all of its own and Frazerhurst has endeavoured to stock products that address this local flavour.

“We like fabrics that reflect and work with our environment,” says Tracey. “Nothing too bright or bold but not boring either.”

“We have wonderful suppliers that offer us new product every three months. From the expansive range they offer us, we have to decide what our discerning Northland clients will like.”

The current trend for colours is still predominantly in the grey area but there is a push towards warming things up a bit and adding a bit of colour, advises Tracey. “Soft-muted pinks, denim-blues and dusky-greens are showing up from many suppliers.

“Classic-style florals and embroideries are popular as well. I am personally very excited to tell you stunning children’s prints are finally being offered as well.

“Don’t be shy to ask for help. Not everyone has a clear image of what they want and that is ok.”

Join Tracey and the team in the showroom for their June birthday month and get inspired, along with a great discount and take some special birthday baking home for your tea break.
