Karrie-Anne from KwithHeart - Modern Designs for Spunky Bubs


It's been a while since I've done a "support local design" post, but I'm sure you'll agree it's worth the wait! Being a proud new mum to a gorgeous little lad I now know what it's like to be totally uninspired by whats on offer for these groovy little guys in the shops. This weeks feature, Karrie-Anne from KwithHeart, talks to us abut what inspired her to create bang-on-trend goodies for SPUNKY bubs and lets us know a little about herself too.

 Take a look at Karrie-Annes website here and buy a spunky bub you know something unique while supporting small, local design. They will be the coolest little guy or gal on the block :)

All of her creations are handstamped with lino blocks so no two items are ever exactly alike. She also uses non-toxic inks that are safe for bubs and the environment.

Tell us a little bit about yourself...
Hmmm… This is always a tough one!
I’m a happy mumma to one lil spunk.
I'm a loved up wife to one spunk of a husband.  
I have a commerce degree but can't 'do numbers' to save myself.
I love creating things.
I love making rooms look and feel nice. 
I physically can't bring myself to use a blue pen or write on lined paper.
can’t stand the colour red.
I would eat an antipasto platter every night if I could get away with it.
I’m a night owl.
I’m a dreamer. 
I'm the world’s worst procrastinator but I love getting s#@t done!

Cotton Bibs (set of 5) $40



What inspired you to start KwithHeart?

KwithHeart was born out of a desire to wrap my own bub with a little bit of spunk. I wanted something a bit 'different' to the traditional baby colours and patterns available when I was pregnant, so I decided to make them instead. Friends and family started asking about buying my pieces so I decided to turn it into a business.

How would you describe your style?

I would love to say I am super stylish with lots of options in my wardrobe, but the reality is I live in a rotation of cut-off denim shorts, oversize tees and tanks and my trusty black haviannas. I dream of one day going nuts shopping with a personal stylist and a stash of cash.

Name 3 things you love at the moment...
1. I am absolutely loving sitting out on our deck. Every morning I have my coffee and breakfast on my comfy pretzel bamboo chairs and watch Seb tuck into his toast. I then put up the big umbrella over the lawn, put down a huge rug and set up his toys for the day. We will spend the majority of the day here which I am loving - Oh and I may even finish the day here with a sneaky drink with the husbo! 
2. This Gold Coast humidity and this warm summer breeze - although it's not ideal for my hair!
3. Marble. I am obsessing over everything marble at the moment! I'm loving marble cheese boards, coasters, desk items and random decorative pieces.
