Filled with botanical motifs, bright stripes and checks, and swirling pastel sea scapes, this fresh range of glorious textiles promises to make your home as warm and bright as a sojourn by the seaside.

Chances are you’re already more than a little familiar with the powerhouse creative women behind Kip&Co. If you missed the launch of their EPIC collaboration with Bábbarra Women’s Centre in Arnhem Land last month, you might recognise co-founder Alex McCabe from not one but TWO of her gorgeous home tours – or co-founder Kate Heppell from hers in Sorrento! (Suffice to say, we love a little Kip&Co around here!).

This talented trio (sisters Kate Heppell and Hayley Pannekoecke and their best bud Alex McCabe) are known for their bright, summery colours, eye-catching patterns and contemporary, eclectic homewares. Their lush bedding options are notable for their brilliant clashing of colourful print, pattern and texture – these designers pile weaves on tassels on velvet on quilt like we’ve never seen before!

For the latest Vacay collection, the reigning queens of colour have manifested their reputation for bold pattern as bedding sets and pyjamas, in a variety of new prints. These vivid scenes of flourishing coastal blooms or swirls inspired by the ocean are realised in a palette of dusty pinks, chestnut, lavender, pale blue and agave green. And to satisfy the more traditional among us, there is of course a Kip&Co twist on some classic stripes!

Alongside its signature bedlinen is Kip&Co’s new enamel servingware, resin cutlery, accessories (hello, velvet laptop case!) and children’s pieces. And we’re giving away $1,000 to spend on whatever you like! We know, it’s awesome. Best of luck.

Please note this competition is now closed. The winner was drawn and announced on Thursday, 22nd October 2020. See here for details.
