This week we are delighted to welcome Kirsty Patrick, founder of the eponymous, byKirsty to Block's Life in Colour feature.
Born from a love of design and a belief that homes should inspire, Kirsty opened her first shop, home by Kirsty in August 2014. The shop is full of beautiful, design-led products by over 50 leading British and Welsh designer-makers. All share a clean, contemporary aesthetic with a Scandinavian style, individually chosen by Kirsty.
Check out Kirsty's beautiful store online and shop the range here.
As if running Cardiff's most exciting new shop were not enough, Kirsty also designs and makes her own lighting range, byKirsty.
Here Kirsty shares her story in four special objects:
My total love is the iconic Eames Rocking Chair in white. What a husband and wife team Charles and Ray Eames were: they shaped 20th Century design as we know it today. One day I will own a genuine design classic. Sculptural forms with beautiful wooden rockers... I am in heaven!
Sitting on the shelves in my shop, home byKirsty, you will find these beauties by... none other than Block, ticking my wood and white boxes! Perfect for tidying away pens, jewellery or a sneaky stash of sweets!
