English Rose – Cath Kidston

leave a comment »


Cath Kidston reminds me of being a little girl,  I once begged my mom to decorate my bedroom with everything rose buds. I had a rose bud bed cover, rose bud curtains and cushions.  Even my barbies had little rose bud dresses.

Maybe it’s this nostalgia that draws me to all things Cath Kidston or maybe it’s just that it’s so cute.  Classic prints like ‘Spray Flowers’ has that kind of timeless appeal that captures girls of 5 through to ladies of 95. While newer prints such as ‘Strawberry’ has me wanting to redesign my kitchen just to accommodate a rather large Strawberry print blind.

On a recent holiday to St Ives, I must have visited their Cath Kidston shop 4 times in one week.  I planned to treat myself to something but it was impossible to decide what.  I want my house to look like this shop, it’s so wonderful.

The New summer range of clothes is of course just as gorgeous as the homeware.  I’m lusting after this linen dress and ‘Bath Flowers’ Cotton shirt.
