The reactions to the Kate Moss Interior Design story

30th September 2015

If you are interested in interior design and keep up to date with the interior design blogs, then you can’t have missed the big Kate Moss Interior Design headline this week.

Kate Moss unveils her Interior Design debut – this headline has been plastered all over social media, blogs and even the big name newspapers and magazines.

It’s been interesting to see the designers reactions to this on Twitter and Facebook. There are a lot of people saying that she isn’t a qualified designer, she doesn’t know what she’s doing and on and on.

Yes, some of these might be true, and some might not be. But we all know how business works and Yoo have capitalised on Kate Moss’ massive celebrity status to promote their new development, and yes, there are people out there who will spend £2.5m on a home ‘designed’ by Kate Moss.

I say, “Well done” to her. She got us talking about design and there has been a lot of talk this week. And as you know (or might learn now), that is what I know is good for design. Talking about design is what is going to make design better and is what is going to educate people on how to use design for their own good.

I think the press coverage this week also helps to promote interior design and help even more people to understand what an interior designer does. This is good for all of us.

  • Kate Moss lives in the the world of high end fashion, whether clothes or interiors, and I think the styling seen here rings true to her persona.

    • That’s a good point. I think it’s very clear that this design shows off her personality.

    • That’s very true. There’s a definite rock edge to it but still very luxury.

  • Laura R

    Actually I kinda like it, something a little different and lush about it all (and no, I hadn’t seen anything about Kate Moss and her interior designing) but she has a style unique to her so why not use it

    • There’s definitely a rock star edge to the design which I like too. But also very comfortable and liveable. Thanks for commenting.

    • A definite ‘rock star’ edge to the design, but still luxe and comfy.

    To be honest I think it is stunning. Kate has clearly used her knowledge from years of modelling and photography and knowing what makes a good set and is stylish and bought this through into the house. There are stand out pieces in each of the room that give it a luxurious rocky edge. I’ve seen homes designed by interior designers that are hideous and yet people pay a lot more for them!

    • Love your comment. It’s so interesting to see the reactions from people. Given that it’s been designed as a show home, the statement pieces are important here. I too think that the place has a lot of personality. Thanks for the comment x

    • ha ha – how true! Even though this has been done as a showhome, I still think it’s very liveable and could work well as a home, a grown up stylish home that is.

  • Deborah Seitz

    I enjoy her single pops of bright pinks amongst an otherwise neutral & earthy pallet. She really likes velvet apparently too! Overall I think it is a nice design 🙂

    • There is a lot of texture in the design and that always works well. I think the edgy colours give it a great personality. Thank you for your comment.

  • Fabulous blog post x thanks Grant!

  • I think it’s gorgeous, it really focuses on comfort – or it appears to, through design. It’s a yes from me!

    • Thanks for the comment, me too, I do like it, and it get’s everyone talking about interior design!
