In celebration of her new book A Place Called Home, the ‘Queen of Print’ Cath Kidston will be in conversation with curator Teresa Collenette, and reveal the secrets in achieving her signature style.
“When I walked in I had that heart stopping moment when I felt I could have been at home, and the feeling completely overtook me.” – Cath Kidston
In this intimate discussion, Cath will delve into her creative process and share the reasons behind her design choices. Equipped with stories, a wealth of experience and expert advice, she will reveal how anyone can transform a house into a home.
An interior design and styling icon, Cath Kidston founded her brand in 1993 and built into a globally recognised name. In 2017, she founded a new solo venture, Joy of Print, a creative studio specialising in designing print for the interiors and fashion worlds.
Teresa Collenette is a design historian. A graduate of the Royal College of Art / Victoria and Albert Museum History of Design Masters programme, she is part of the curatorial team at the Fashion and Textile museum including Swinging London, Zandra Rhodes: 50 Years of Fabulous and the upcoming Beautiful People.
Cath Kidston will be on hand to sign copies of her new interiors book-come-memoir, A Place Called Home, £30, published by Pavilion, available to buy in the Museum shop.
The book takes readers on a journey through Cath’s home, from the Entrance Hall to the Sitting Room and the Kitchen to the Dining Room, discovering how a carefully selected piece can tie a room together.
