Building Character

Building Character

With a neutral palette of fresh paint in white, ivory, and shades of mist and charcoal, Kate had creative freedom to layer rooms and shape looks by using her artist’s eye and colorful collections. “I’ve gathered quite an eclectic mix of things over time,” she says. “I like old, characterful pieces that have a story. Some are gifts, or things I’ve salvaged or inherited, and each one is here because it has some meaning for me.”
