boho chick {cat deeley}…

it appears cat deeley has stolen not only my hair & wardrobe, but my home too!

i’m loving her bedroom’s take on boho chic which weaves in some earthy sculptural elements to offset the glamour…

& this lounge proves a theory i’ve been developing in my head for a while now… every home needs some ugly {yes, that caterpillar couch has a face only a mother could love} in order to be truly beautiful…

not only does this la pad feature my much coveted peacock mirror, but i’ve also heard crazy talk of zebra heads & mexican textiles too…

i’m looking forward to checking out the rest of this eclectic abode in this month’s instyle magazine…

  1. Hi Sue, your posts are very entertaining (not to mention inspiring on the design front)! Rita Konig was expounding the idea of every room needing a bit of ugly at a talk yesterday as part of Focus (London Design Festival). I guess it’s like how you often end up loving sineone’s quirky, less than perfect facial features. (That’s why I’m never getting a nose job!) Thanks for the post! X

      • Yes it was the Living Etc Masterclass that Rita Konig was at. Kit Kemp spoke too. Many of her interiors have something verging on ugly about them!! But I am going to look out for the off the scale ugly things now too! Cat Deeley’s sofa really is quite minging! Now I’m going to find it even harder to throw things out!

  2. haha laura… there seriously isn’t such a thing as an original thought is there! i swear i didn’t hear rita’s talk, but i have been noticing that a lot of the interiors i truly love have something distinctly off-the-charts ugly about them… i think it’s the ugly that makes you appreciate the beautiful all the more! and you’re bang on about it being the same with facial features…

  3. Well, sorry to put a spanner in the works. I’ve never liked Cat D, I find her irritating and that interior pad just proofs to me why. She is all hair and teeth and smiles and bought herself an OTT interior that says nothing about her except that she likes clothes and the fast lane in life. Utterly uninspiring woman.

    These sort of interiors don’t make much allowances for personal possessions and books. Ladies, I agree however with the sentiment of something ugly can make it very attractive…. found that often in men:))

  4. Ha ha Tina that just made me laugh.

    I really like Cat’s house but it does rather look like a J’Adler shop. The article said she’s designed it herself without the help of an intdes but I find that very hard to believe. I think she’s telling porkies.

    Rita was awesome, I embarrassed myself by gushing all over her. And Kit Kemp rocked. She also talked about the fuglies!

    Cat Deeley got married yesterday to that Patrick Kielty so I guess she likes a bit of ugly afterall!

  5. Ha! to Tina’s comments!!!

    I love KD’s hair and the body wouldn’t be too shabby to own either. The interior has been designed to within an inch of it’s life though and far too much white going on in the bedroom for me. The caterpillar couch is hideous, I’m not sure what’s worse, the putrid bogey colour or the design.

    She has a special place in my heart though from watching her funny antics with Ant and Dec on SMTV Saturday morning in the late 90’s with my kids x

    • i remember those ant & dec days too! haha… i can’t decide if i love or hate the couch, but i do know it’s ugly with a capital U! but i dare say i’m quite partial to upping the glamour stakes in the home, as long as it doesn’t resemble something from the set of dallas… ie, it still needs to feel like a home…

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
