White Forest Home: To-Die-For Prints with Passion!
“Sometimes you have to take a chance on yourself and back yourself,” says Anastasia Kotis, the creative behind local biz White Forest Home. The chapter in her life she’s referring to is the one in which she left her corporate job to pursue her creative dream. It happened in August 2012 – and the Canterbury wife and mum hasn’t looked back.
“I had thought about having my own business for a few years, however I was always in corporate roles and didn’t have the time,” she tells me. 18 months later, having ditched the nine to five, Anastasia focuses on producing the stunning pieces of art White Forest Home is now known for.
“Affordable eye candy which can be updated when you feel the need to keep a room fresh and fun,” is how this talented lady describes the prints, which I have to admit I’m going absolutely bananas over.
“The ‘Just Be You Always’ print (above) is one of my favourites,” she explains. “It encompasses everything that is beautiful”.
Having been featured in Real Living, Home Beautiful and other publications, this is clearly a local biz that’s going places. “We are extending our product into the US and UK markets through local stores – so exciting stuff,” Anastasia says.
And though business is booming for Anastasia, it really is a passion for what she creates – and where it ends up – that drives her.
“I like the fact that people are giving positive and loving gifts to their loved ones”.
