Bear with me while I get to the point on this one…. This @thedesignfiles story fills me with such joy. Not only is this house the biggest gift to my colour-loving eyes (pink concrete bench... does it get any better?!), but this is also the house of friends of mine who I’m loving witnessing killing it in life as a happy little fam bam. This is the home of Alex McCabe, who is one of the co-founders and Creative Director of @kipandco (#swoon),
and her all round good guy partner Bobby Babbs. Alex and I worked together years ago back when I was NAB. We pulled some long hours together on yawn-inducing annual reporting. Thank god we had a team of legends working with us on this boring task that kept us going. I remember we were having a meeting on said boring report when Alex had to take a call which turned out to be one of the earliest days conversations about forming Kip & Co. They didn’t even have that name back then it was such early days. I remember Alex telling me about her “little side hustle” and I reckon I probably did the old, “I’ll buy something for you” – not sure where the company would go and throwing some friendship support her way. 5 years later and they are one of the most recognisable brands in the design world and KILLING IT. Bobby worked in another area of NAB and we connected straight away and I always enjoyed when we had some project we were on together. Great value. Just before leaving NAB I had the pleash of welcoming Bobby’s superstar sister to my team and we have continued our friendship long after moving roles. So when I saw this pop up in my feed today, it made me so happy. Click the link in my bio to take you through to the full article where you will see this most amazing and unique love nest for this power couple and their gorgeous girl, Quincy. And keep following @kipandco as they basically expand their product range every time I straighten my hair. If you can’t find what you need to beautify your room at Kip & Co, you probs don’t need it!
