Lovehart is a ying yang collaboration of design duo and husband and wife team Theresa and Simon Hart. They both studied at The Royal College of Art and worked for many leading retailers in the UK and abroad as well as teaching as visiting lecturers. The catalyst that brought their two creative styles together was a lucky find in acquiring local printers vintage letter press equipment, abandoned and crying out for a new life in the 21st century. These hand printed fonts form the foundation of much of their work. Lovehart is infused with their lifestyle on the beautiful South Devon Coast line. Working closely together they have developed the lovehart brand specializing in design led greetings cards, gift stationery, home textiles and accessories.
Their facination with antiques and restoration has resulted in a growing range of personalised gifts. Their aim to create heirloom quality gifts that celebrate life and the wonderful natural world around us. Lovehart represents a carefully considered balance of old and new technology garnished with a generous dollop of gorgeous vintage images. The threads that bind the Harts (apart from a marriage certificate!) are a love of pattern and colour, a sense of playfulness with an occasional nod to old fashioned values and the joyful differences between boys and girls!
Dartmouth in beautiful South Devon is the base for the business where they work from studios either side of their home! They also run popular holiday properties with their signature style and original art of course!
