Cath Kidston’s house – under the hammer

Cath Kidston has just sold her Cotswold’s home for £1.75 million. She had lived in the seven-bedroom farm house for the last ten years, and it had been the inspiration for many of her designs. It also regularly featured in her catalogues.


It all began in 1992 when Cath set up a small shop in Holland Park, London, where she sold vintage fabrics and wallpapers and thus from its humble beginnings the Cath Kidston cult was born. Her first creation was a floral ironing board cover which was fun and practical and now a trademark of Cath Kidston designs.

It seems everyone’s a fan… even Thomas.

You don’t need to look far to find a bit of Cath Kidston paraphernalia, it’s unlikely that you are far from a coin purse or a key ring with a cheerful floral design covering it.

If you want some inspiration from the home of Cath Kidston, opt for neutral walls and go eclectic with furnishings. Cath is all about English country-inspired design and vintage finds. Keep your walls egg-shell and experiment with fun prints for cushions and throws.

Cath isn’t moving far, just up the valley to a grander house – who knows what inspiration the new place with bring to her designs?

Here’s some of this season’s best bits from Cath herself:


1. Bird box bag, £22.00 2. Provence Rose Cushion Cover, £16.00 3. Provence Rose Placement Set of 4 Dinner Plate, £22.00 4. Spray Flowers Print Tea Set for 4, £40.00, all available from Cath Kidston
