~Cath Kidston's Home~

Yes, Take a little peek into the home of Cath Kidston. Most of us know her for her great floral patterns in homeware goods. This house is rather cute but not as stunning as I would have expected coming from her. What do you think? I am wishing I had this striped blue and white couch though!!

  1. I was just looking through one of her books today.. you are right.. I would think there would be a little more oomph!

  2. I agree! Where are all of the pretty florals? I know I would be hoarding some if I was the designer...

  3. What's up with that?? Although these interiors are very lovely! She makes her living off of those wonderful prints-why aren't they in her home?

    confused

  7. I think that first living room photo is more her and I would also like to see a little more color and patterns in her other spaces. Still quite lovely though.

  8. She's gone shabby chic then? I like it, but like everyone else would have expected quite different.

  9. I just wonder if she has so much patter with her work that she needs a break from it??? Just a thought. Seems very simple and mellow in comparison to her work.

  10. Very surprised!! I love Cath Kidstons colors, but her home is well, kind of normal! Maybe she does need a break. I'm still a big fan!

  11. Unexpected but lovely! I think her use of colour was very good. The pink chair in the living room just brought the whole room together. Also I am lusting after that red and white polka dot lamp!

  12. When you design all the things the general public loves, it doesn't mean you want to look at it all the time. Living with your own designs can be exhausting because one constantly sees their work and that can lead to self-critique in one form or another. That's not what one needs in their own home. It's her home.

    I love her work, but as a designer I can appreciate that she doesn't live with every pattern she's created. Her home is lovely, calming, and a great place to retreat from her work and relax.

  13. Great blog, I agree I was expecting an even better house style, with beautiful prints!

    I guess she doesn't want to be surrounded by her work... but her works amazing!!
