Together is a wonderful place to be
StyleCarte is a curated online directory and blog that promotes not only some of the world’s most unique stores and products but seeks to inspire its community to live a life they love. We believe that if you surround yourself with things that make you happy, it shines back on you. If you dress yourself in clothes that you find beautiful, you necessarily will feel that little bit more beautiful yourself. And if we like the look of ourselves and our lives, we enjoy what we have so, so much more.
Style is the way we create our lives
Often we hear people saying they are not stylish. Many unfortunately don’t even trust their taste. The word ‘style’ has been glorified and glamourised when all it actually means is that something is done or worn a certain and consistent way.
We founded StyleCarte as a place for people to come and find the things they love. Without judgement but with certain requirements: the stores and products we list on StyleCarte are unique and beautiful. They are designed and collected by people who strive to enrich our lives. Here you find designer pieces next to handmade products, emerging labels next to all time classics, art alongside quirk. All that we list oozes passion and creativity, vision and values. It doesn’t have age or a certain price tag. But we require for it to give you feelings of fun and excitement, comfort and warmth, beauty and elegance.
Coco Chanel once said that beauty begins the moment that you decide to be yourself. This is what we want for you and all our amazing stores, brands and designers. We are immensely proud that through StyleCarte we are able to not only help our users but to also impact the success of our businesses. This is what we love and that is our style!
The idea of StyleCarte started back in 2000 during a uni project. Our founder Nanna Dorn-Zachertz studied tourism at the time and had to prepare a travel guide. During and after the project she kept thinking how amazing it would be to have an online community that would share their favourite locations, special tips and insider knowledge. While nothing progressed, the idea was stuck in her head. Over the years grew into the burning desire to build a platform to connect people with the same desire: to enjoy life’s every day and to do it beautifully.
Sixteen years later, after moving across the world and having two children, the time was finally right to launch StyleCarte in 2016. She put all that she had learned into action and launched a site that is loved by thousands for its inspirational content, her warm and honest messages (read more about her journey here) and as a source to discover new brands, stores and the most beautiful products out there.
