Giveaway: New Kip and Co kids bedding - Dappled Dreams
The fabulous trio of Hayley, Kate and Alex from Kip & Co. have killed it yet again with their Spring Summer 2013 bedding collection for adults and kids. Dappled Dreams is all bats, pretzels and match sticks mix-and-match in peach, gold, rust, pinky-purple and inky blues. It's a clash of colour that somehow works in only the way that the clever Kip & Co. team can dream up. Let's take a look...
No-one makes bats look cooler:
Love the layered bed - so very Princess And The Pea. And now I need to find a huge disco ball. Oh and I spot a pretty Tutu du Monde tutu too!
Oh, and did I mention that there is a giveaway? If you would like your very own single quilt cover and pillow set in the fabulous purple pretzel design, make sure you are a Bondville monthly newsletter subscriber, and note your favourite piece from the collection, as well as leave your name and contact details in the comment section below. Entries close midnight 31st August 2013. Deliveries to Australian addresses only.
I asked Kate from Kip & Co. a few probing questions about the current collection:
Kate - it's all pretty fabulous. Was Dappled Dreams inspired by any one thing?
We started the brainstorming process by talking about what Summers had meant to each of us. Hayley and I (being sisters) had experienced pretty similar summers growing up and while memories had varied, the sentiment and locations had usually been the same. And while we didn't know Alex yet, her family had lived very close (Merricks) to where we spent Summer breaks (Somers) so she too contributed a very similar Summer memory. It was quite amazing actually how our ideas just merged together like we had been together all those years back. 80's beach vibes, seaweedy sand, salty air, summer friends, great food... it was all in the mix for each of us.
Do you all design every piece, or do each of you add an idea to the melting pot?
Every piece is worked on by each of us and is a true collaboration of each persons ideas... from print, style to colour.
All the pieces seem to mix-and-match so well, but do you have any suggestions for combinations that work best together?
Our lookbook is probably the best reference for this as we have compiled every combination that you see. But to name a few I'd suggest the Obus and Peach Spots or Matchstick Peach, the Croc Pastel and Chambray and the Matchstick Black with the Spots Tan for those looking for something less bright and maybe a touch more masculine. I've gotta say though, the Chambray will go with everything!! And as for the kids, the pretzels are knockout. We are beyond excited about how they have turned out. Pair them with the spots sheet - beautiful.
I love that the Bats design works so well with licensed Batman products. Please tell me that you're working on a design to work with Dora...
Probably won't happen just yet, but we know we'd have a strong customer base in Hayley's kids - that's for sure. They are Dora mad!
You can find Kip & Co. bedding in the online store as well as stockists around Australia, NZ and online.
