Mimco’s creative and commercial director brings as much sparkle to brunch as she does to bags - “What’s a night of entertaining without a little debauchery?”
The Mimco mantra of style is to dream, explore and play with whatever gives their designers delight in the moment. These are environments filled with precious and personality-rich products creating a sense of strong individuality - creating and desire to explore, interact, follow your intuition and be yourself. This unique design aesthetic and in-store experience from Mimco's Cathryn Wills is mirrored in her home and reflected in her lifestyle.
"My entertaining style holds a mirror to my designs," says Wills. The talented designer puts focus around the table setting when she hosts guests at her Melbourne home - family for intimate, casual morning tea and friends for drinks and tasting plates. "I tend to veer towards the simplicity of white and metallic tones, like a plain table setting with gold-coloured cutlery and ivory candles, and lit by fairy lights and tealight candles. It's sparkly, indulgent and fun."
Cathryn's partner John, a self-confessed foodie, mans the kitchen, preparing homemade dips and grissini, olives, roasted peppers and cheeses, while Cathryn tasks herself with the creation of mojitos for some of that debauchery she feels is essential to a night of entertaining.
For cocktails, afternoon teas or brunches where the focus is around small food and simple, classic style for home and table wares - follow Cathryn's style to create the Mimco feel in your home with these gorgeous products from Westfield.com.au.
