Happy Dance! New Sponsor

I am thrilled to announce a new sponsor!
Cath Kidston

Cath is a world renowned London designer who began selling English inspired vintage fabrics and wallpapers.   She founded her company in 1993 with one tiny shop in London's Holland Park which has now grown to 32 shops in the UK and a handful of others located throughout the world.  Her company now includes a wide range of products from homewares to fashion and accessories.

Many of Cath's products are totally English (i.e., the tea cozies and ticket holders) while others simply bring in a hint of the traditional flare.  So, without further adieu, here are some of my favorites from her winter collection (in no particular order)!

Tartan Day Bag

Can't you just see this bag paired with jeans and a comfy sweater for the cooler months?  Even a pair of red wellies for a rainy day. 

Tartan Large Clasp Purse

I also love this small clasp purse.  Sometimes it's nice to carry just a small purse with essentials in it rather than a huge bag.

Retro Flowers Knitting Bag

OK, I don't know how to knit, but this little bag might make me pick it up.  I think it is the most adorable thing!  The perfect size for a small project that you can take with you anywhere.

Boy's Winter Hat

No way around it - this is just stinkin' cute!

Now for a few home goods, since, after all, this is a blog about interior design!

Zoo Duvet Set

Both of my children have out grown this look, but I still love it.  The vintage feel of this fabric makes it timeless for a nursery or toddler's room.

Also, look at these amazing wallpapers for a child's room.  Either would be a fantastic jumping off point to create a very special room.  You could use this paper on an accent wall and then paint the other walls a soft color for major impact.

Vintage Car Wallpaper

For the little boy in your life!

Circus Wallpaper

This circus paper (sorry for the fuzzy image) would be wonderful for a boy or girl.

This wavy stripe has several fun colors included which coordinate with either wallpaper above, but it also has a kaki and a watery blue green stripe which add a bit of sophistication that primary colors alone can't match.

 I could see a bed skirt for a crib out of this stripe along with an accent pillow for a chair in the same space.

And last, but certainly not least, is this cool item.  Have you ever seen anything like this?  It's a linen tea towel in a can!  A can of clean it up!! Who knew?!

These are just a few of Cath's products - there are lots of others on her website.  Please click over and welcome her to the Muse!
Enjoy your day. M.
