Founder of The White Company, Chrissie Rucker, shares her favourite home and away haunts

TROPICAL BEACH OR CHALET CHIC?

We love skiing and our favourite destination is Klosters. It has a special old-fashioned charm. The mountains are beautiful and there’s something magical about cosy Alpine style with big log fires. For the adventurous, Klosters is famous for its off-piste skiing, and for those who like a more relaxed approach, there’s a wide range of beautiful pistes which are incredibly well-maintained and a great choice for all abilities. The food is fantastic and for us, it also feels like home away from home, as we have family there, too.

BUCKET LIST NO. 1?

I am a patron for The Princes Trust Women Supporting Women, and as part of this, we want to do a fundraising trip, possibly up Kilimanjaro – we’re investigating options now. As a family we have India, The Gorillas and The Northern Lights on our list.

BEST GLOBAL GETAWAY FOR DESIGN INSPIRATION?

There are so many wonderfully inspiring destinations across the globe. Paris always delivers the perfect pared down coat and Antwerp always inspires with a beautiful neutral palette. Tokyo is also high on the list, as it’s famed for minimalism in terms of ceramics and kitchen items.

STYLE TREND YOU WOULD LIKE TO BRING BACK?

The White Company produce timeless pieces with an inherent and intuitive sense of style, simplicity and elegance. Whoever you are, whatever your own personal style is, white does just always work in some way. Trends come and go but some things endure. Simplicity and elegance for me are the vital ingredients that make both a home and a wardrobe work. Carefully considered, thoughtful design, principally in white, because whoever you are, it simply works.
