SOOTHING MINIMALISM | @katessunshine_

Come with us as we discover the soothing palette of Kate Brigginshaw's family home. A labour of love, Kate and her wife Ali renovated their Brisbane home to create this charming mix of traditional features with a soothing touch of modern minimalism.

 

 

A CALMING PALETTE 

Kate has styled her home in a soothing, calming palette. The pair have successfully incorporated a mix of cult modern furnishings like wishbone chairs and brushed brass tapware with a whisper of more traditional elements coming through in the herringbone tiles and the home's exterior.

 

Q: How would you describe your interior style?

Kate:  I would describe my interior style as calm and minimal.

 

 

FAVOURITE NOOK |  Light & Airy

 

Q: What is your favourite nook in your home?

Kate: Definitely our master bedroom, walk in robe and ensuite. It's our own little private wing of the house and the first big reno we did. I spent a lot of time working on the design, I wanted to maintain the integrity of the house whilst keeping the space light and airy which I think we've done. It's a room that I walk into and instantly feel happy in. 

 

 

 

 

FAVOURITE PIECES | Beautiful & Durable

 

Q: A few words about your favourite I Love Linen pieces.

Kate: It's so hard to pick a favourite I Love Linen piece. I can't go past the Pure Linen Beige Gingham Quilt Cover, it's such a classic print. But tha Bamboo Sheet Set is so luxe and decadent. I love to mix and match the different textures of these fabrics. 

 

Kate styles her bed with our White Bamboo Sheet Set, French Linen Quilt Cover in Sage and Olive Stripe Standard Pillowcases. Kate also mentions the Pure Linen Beige Gingham Quilt Cover (not pictured).

 

 

FEELING OF HOME 

 

Q: What makes you feel most at home?

Kate: In sounds so cliché, but anywhere my kids and wife are is where I feel most at home.
