Meet Edwynna Adams, the woman behind the store ....


Aren't the photographs simply delightful! We love the way that our range complements a beautiful, joyful childhood.

If you are fortunate enough to visit Casltemaine in rural Victoria, be sure to pop in to Malmaison and have a browse of Edwynna's store. Malmaison also operate an online store. Visit them 
here and here on Facebook.

Welcome Edwynna to our blog. Thank you for sharing a little about yourself and your store and the beautiful images seen above :)

How long have you been running your business?
I have been operating Malmaison for the past eight years. Malmaison was a combination of my many passions, France, French History, Botanical beauty and gorgeous French style for our home and family.

What were you doing prior to your current venture?
My background is as a Human Resource professional mainly in people management, change management and training roles. Prior to opening Malmaison I worked in the Human Resources field as a consultant.

If you had to choose a favourite product from your range, what would it be and why?
My favourite product from our range would have to be the Limoge porcelain, in particular the sweet baby teapots. We are so rushed in our busy lives, there is something so special about giving ourselves time to enjoy a relaxing cuppa from the most beautiful teaware in the world. So elegant!

My favourite Alimrose product is Mia le Lapin, as I love tucking my little girl Mietta in and checking on her before I head to bed and watching her all cuddled up with her very own Mia le Lapin. Makes my heart melt every time I look at the two of them together!

What do you do to relax?
At the moment I relax by exercising. Sounds weird, but It allows me some me time to myself to think (or not), and just be outdoors in the fresh air, clear my head and feel energised and calmer, ready to get back into life with a busy family.

If you were able to go wherever you wanted to this weekend, where would it be?
Paris of course! My favourite city in the world … although I would also love to be at a cooking school somewhere in regional France probably Burgundy, learning to cook some new delicious recipes from produce purchased from the local farmer’s markets.

What was the last thing that you purchased?
A cocktail dress to wear to my sister’s 40th birthday party. A very special treat!

Who lives at your place?
My husband Brad (also my business partner) and our three beautiful children, Benjamin 13, Harrison 9 & Mietta 5. Our gorgeous dog Milo (chocolate Labrador), 2 cats (Roger & Ruby), a Gold Fish and three chickens Josephine, Henny Penny & Speckled.
