Bare Essentials


We have been hugely inspired by our collaboration this month with Cate St Hill, whose understated, minimal aesthetic allows for a clean, clutter-free home and therefore a calmer spirit and fresh focus, which is particularly welcome at the start of a new year.

Cate’s interior style concentrates on carefully-considered, honest, well-crafted objects, in largely monochrome and neutral palettes.  If you are keen to strip back and refresh a corner of your home in a more minimalist direction, we have sourced some similar accessories to those Cate has around her lovely home. Most are well-within the leaner January budget, with one aspirational exception from Scandinavian design house Iittala – something to save up for!
