Bernard Thorp Collaboration

We are delighted, not only to be collaborating with Bernard Thorp on our Kelling Loves, but also as part of our new product range. More to be revealed soon, but in the meantime, have a read of our ‘5 minutes with..’ interview with Harriett of Bernard Thorp, and see some of her favourite things as part of our Kelling Loves below…

What you think are the most important features when designing a space?

A focal point. Whether this is a piece of art, a fab piece of striking furniture or a beautiful arrangement of flowers. Having the eye naturally drawn inside a room invites further appreciation of the rest of the room.

What is the one thing you would have to have in every property you ever lived in?

A dog. It’s what makes home, home.

What is your favourite piece of furniture?

An ottoman, as shown so perfectly here by Milly Green, founder of The Ottoman Studio. Our ‘Bahari’ looks so smart. Perfect for displaying books, placing a drinks tray or simply resting your feet.

Your favourite colour?

We love this vibrant ‘Blue Pearl’ by Paint Library London. A bold bathroom or hallway can be so smart. Alternatively, sisal and grasscloth walling can really add depth and texture.

And finally, our verging on the ridiculous, quick fire questions:

  • Coffee or green juice in the morning? Both!

  • What country would you most like to live in? Kenya

  • Bold colours or Neutrals? Bold

  • Royal Academy or Tate Modern? Royal Academy

  • Soho House or Firmdale? Firmdale

  • North or South of the River? South

  • Mini or Maserati? Mini

  • Sun or Snow? Sun

  • Pug or Parrot? Pug

  • Brunch or Cocktails? Both!

  • Sushi or Beef Wellington? Can we pass?!
