Newcastle, Northern Ireland United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 16, 2011 -- Jodie Byrne, 25, had followed in the footsteps of the famous Percy French song by seeking her fortune in London but has now returned home to Newcastle, Co Down the place that inspires her the most to establish an online boutique - http://www.jodiebyrne.com - selling unique Danish home decor.

"I have travelled extensively and love the wooden homes in Scandinavia and the shabby chic of homes in New England and I'm trying to put these looks together so that they are accessible to people in the UK and Ireland," she said.
"The current collection offers understated elegance - it's unpretentious simplicity that is bang on trend but it's also classic and timeless," she said.

During her studies, Jodie pursued a keen interest in interior design and printed textiles, publicly and internationally exhibiting her own designs at top industry Trade shows; Indigo Paris, Surtex New York and New Designers London.
