Georgia Wyrill is a force to be reckoned with in the world of jewelry design. As the founder and creative director of Saint Valentine, a Sydney-based brand that specializes in modern and feminine designs with a focus on quality and affordability, she’s built a loyal following since launching in 2016. When she’s not busy running her business, Georgia enjoys her weekends in Sydney with her partner Locky and their whippet dog, Mika. We catch up with Georgia and find out how this busy entrepreneur makes the most of her downtime.
Fridays I am out of the office focusing on my personal art practice. I made the most of daylight savings and was painting late while I had the light, putting down tools for a cider at sunset when my partner Locky was home.
I always start the day with a coastal walk with my whippet, Mika, and getting a coffee from a local café. I then head to Elixir gym for a reformer Pilates class.
We have recently moved into a bigger house so are enjoying the process of redecorating and dropped into Jardan, a beautiful furniture store in Paddington in the late morning to choose fabric for our new couch.
Saturday night is usually fairly low key these days apart from the odd social occasion. When there’s nothing specific planned, my partner and I often opt for a casual date night at a nearby spot, such as Love Supreme in Paddington. Here, we indulge in delicious pizza, a glass of Sangiovese, and indulge in the homemade pistachio gelato – all while discussing our future plans.
On Sundays we take the opportunity to have a lie-in and catch up with friends or family for brunch. On a recent Sunday we hosted a birthday breakfast celebration for Locky’s dad and his wife. The spread included mimosas, croissants from Iggy’s, and homemade mini breakfast quiches.
As I prepare for the week ahead, I find that taking some time to conduct creative research on Instagram and Pinterest helps me get into the right headspace. Just last week, I curated a mood board for our latest Miro collection, to share as a glimpse behind the scenes of the brand. To wind down my weekend, I enjoy finishing with a movie while taking a bath, and then settling in for an early night.
