Shops We Love: Poodle & Blonde Satisfies The Dog-Obsessed Design Lover

Whinnie Williams’ love for pets is no secret. The British pop singer (left) has an impressive 18 animals (poodles, guinea pigs, rabbits and chickens… oh my) in her whimsical home in Margate, England, just 90 minutes east of London. Fittingly, she has decorated her house in a retro animal theme, and it’s attracted the attention of photographers and filmmakers who frequently use it as a set. “It’s my creative madhouse,” says Whinnie.

As her passion for interiors and design grew, Whinnie was eager to start her own homeware brand, so she partnered with the London-based interior consultant Kierra Campbell to start Poodle & Blonde — an online store that ships to Canada and beyond. “We both have quite different styles,” explains Whinnie. “I am a lot more feminine and Kierra’s style is bolder and sexier, so we complement each other well. We also get on like a house on fire which makes working so much fun.”
