Proving it’s not only period properties that can be characterful, Kate has created a neutral backdrop for her quirky taste. Using Tranquil Dawn with bright accents in Coral Flair and Sun Flare she has zoned areas such as her coffee station and dining space.
“I don’t just use the table for entertaining,” she says. “With a tiny kitchen, it acts as another surface for cake baking; and a desk when I work from home. My mum suggested having benches instead of chairs, which saves a lot of space.”
It’s not only bench brainwaves Kate credits her mum for, either. “When I was young, we moved all over the world, so creating flexible, stylish spaces that feel like home quickly is a skill I’ve learnt from her. It means our shared style is reflective of the places we’ve lived, curating interesting items and layering cultural styles.”
