What Kate loves

With Valentine's Day just around the corner we thought we'd grab Kate and find out what she loves!

What's your favourite morning routine...

Last year our family picked up our first puppy, Luna.  We adore her and with this stunning weather I love getting up super early and taking her for long walks around the river.  It's just the best way to start the day with fresh air and time to think and plan!

Tea or Coffee...

Tea!  I just love a good strong cup of tea with milk - several in the morning and a herbal in the afternoon.  Sometimes with a little treat from our neighbours at Simply Beautiful Biscuits.

Tell us about your ideal Friday night...

Dinner with the family.  Usually something from Sal's Pasta and a glass of pinot.

What are you reading/watching/listening to...

Reading - Lessons in Chemistry.  Another fab recommendation from the girls at Open Book

Watching - I've just started watching Boy Swallows Universe.

Listening  - to my son's playlists he compiles for me and the store.

What are you most excited about at Darling & Domain in 2024...

Welcoming new brands in Homewares and Fashion (stay tuned....), our next instore Art Exhibition and more workshops.  

Show us your favourite things in store right now...

I love this time of the year with all the new arrivals.  We still get beautiful warm days but cooler nights so you can layer up beautiful pieces and fabrics.  I love the new range from Alessandra in silk, it feels amazing to wear and the print is classic.

I love by Charlotte jewellery for myself and I think it makes such a great gift for all ages, all wrapped up in a gorgeous box.  The new range of delicate rings with coloured stones are very sweet.

All things lilac for me!  Current favourites in store is the Moana print from Bonnie & Neil and the Fazeek platters.  

For something truly special, I love the sculptural pieces of The Foundry House.  They are artworks in themselves!

I love fresh scents so the Nina Bailey Paradiso candle or diffuser are favourites.  I love everything from Salus for myself and they are go to gifts for my friends.
