Meet…Kip & Co

We sit down and take ten with our favourite gals of bedding, and newest collaborators, Kip & Co.

Ok ladies, I know it’s probably like asking you to choose a favourite child, BUT what’s your favourite Kip & Co print?

We’ve never been asked that before!! This is predictable given the collaboration but we really love the bananas – and not just cause you can quote Gwen Stefani all the time; “this sh*t is bananas – b-a-a-n-a-n-a-s”…hours of fun right there. It’s also one of our earliest prints but has stood the test of time. This season though I am very obsessed with our ‘strokes’ print – it’s a very organic, natural feeling design and we just love the watercolour tone of it.

What’s your favourite place to Kip?

A hammock on a Summer holiday. Chuck a Kip & Co x Basil Bangs over you to beat the sun and you’re in dreamland!

Do you have any favourite summer memories from the beach?

We’re all water babies so we share fond memories when we were kids of big family sessions down at the beach with our extended clan, plastic sandcastle kits galore, sunny boy ices, sausage sizzles and an 80s stereo with some Whitney Houston cranking.

Why do you think people will love ‘Bananas’?

It’s our favourite! Who doesn’t love the ultimate potassium hit of pop mellow yellow colour and fun!

Describe the Bananas print in 3 words: 

Shameless, yellow banana

Which beaches will we see your Bananas umbrella set up this summer?

Kate and Hayley will be leading the charge down on Point Lonsdale and Barwon Heads beaches and Alex will be rocking it out from Merricks to Mount Martha

What’s on your holiday music playlist

We love to mix it up the classics like Fleetwood Mac or Run DMC, with current stuff like the Weeknd and Bannoffee…and anything in between!

What will we catch you reading/doing/playing on your Love Rug these holidays?

Kate will be getting some tummy time action with her new baby due in a few weeks!! And we will be seating around gawking at the new little tyke!
