Winter is coming....and so is my new collection

So, it's been six months since I launched my business. I've learnt quite a bit in this very short time and have really tried to incorporate some of those experiences, and your feedback into developing my new collection, which – fingers crossed – will be here soon.

Here's a little bit of news from me:

Cushion sizing

I've had various comments about people's preferences for cushion sizing. The one thing that kept coming back was that 30 x 40cm inserts have been tricky to find. So, I've resized my smallest cushion covers to be 30 x 50cm. This size seems easier to track down so hopefully this will make life a little easier. I know for example, that H&M do a really good feather insert in this size so hopefully your cushion insert dreams will be answered! 

Another request was for a larger 60 x 60cm cushion. I won't have them this time around but am hoping to be able to roll out some larger – and different-sized – cushions as my business grows. If you do have a cushion size preference please email me at or message on Instagram (@_kittyholmes_)

Colour palette

There is definitely more of a cosy, wintry feel this time round. It's all about navy blues and burnt yellows and reds. I've used a heavier weight fabric, going for a double cotton Oxford cloth rather than linen, and on some reverse sides have used a cotton velvet. Of course, nothing matchy-matchy, it's pattern clash galore. No plain Jane sofas for me (or you, presumably, if you're reading this post). 

Expanded range

Who would have thought?  I'm not just about cushion covers any more. Some of the feedback I got was that people wanted to see some of my designs in things other than cushions. So, this season, I'm going to trial some napkins for your holiday tables and also some make-up bags, which make great gifts for Christmas, or for yourself, for any old time. To make these things possible at this early stage in my business, I have made them, along with my cushion covers, in quite limited quantities, so if you want anything, I really would be quick with placing your orders!

Please email me at  if there anything else you'd like me to see develop or patterns and colours that you'd like to see in the future. 

Black Friday

I will be doing a really special offer for this. Please make sure you follow me on Instagram (@_kittyholmes_) for more details. Definitely sign up to my mailing list too!

So that's about all from me. Keep your eyes open for new products and offers that should be here soon.
