English Love

15 Apr

Cath Kidston began selling vintage fabrics, wallpapers and painted junk furniture in a tiny shop in London in 1993.  Her designs and style were influenced by her beautiful childhood memories.  She put a brilliant, tasteful spin on the traditional English country house style.  And I have fallen in love.



And oh my word, she’s even got a tent!

    I love this look! I worry though, with kids, everything would be stained and you could SEE it! :)

    I am glad you all enjoyed her beautiful work.

    Stef, a touch of it here and there is great– especially with things that can be washed. She also makes oil cloths, that easily wipe off, however they are a pretty penny. : ) Just be inspired.
