In Case You Were Wondering with Ella Dumbrell

Because we celebrate multi-hyphenates and knowledge of oneself here, we simply had to sit down with Ella Dumbrell. We're all a concoction of many talents and interests, after all. A content creator, homewares label founder and now podcaster, she gives us the recommendations we need this week and dishes on dinner party must-haves.

First, an intro:

My name is Ella. I'm 31 from Sydney, Australia, and recently, I have found this question harder to answer than usual! Up until a year ago, I was founder and head of creative at my social media agency, The Ardent Co. This year, however, has brought a new chapter for me, involving exploring my passion projects full-time and leaving agency life! 

I now dedicate my time between Kolide Goss – my podcast with my bestie; Kornelia Paulina, which is a mix of both my loves – glassware and vintage treasures; and lastly, creating content for brands on my Instagram.
