Meet Katie

July 6, 2011

Katie came to us seeking some design guidance on her living/dining room. She had recently purchased her first place along with some essential pieces of furniture from Room & Board. She stopped there realizing she needed help to really make her first place the home she’d always wanted. After our initial consultation we were thrilled she’d reached out for help and knew it was the perfect project for us! This week we’re introducing her and the u:board we created. Check back next week to see the final design solutions.

Katie is a young and vivacious east coast girl who just purchased her first home – an industrial downtown loft that speaks to her casual contemporary tastes. After spending many long hours at the hospital with her young patients, Katie has come to yearn for a lighter, more feminine space to come home to. To help her achieve this we started by creating a classic color palette of navy blue and white – we then layered on warm neutrals with accents of glittery bronze. The juxtaposition of classic contemporary lines, furnishings, and architecture paired with soft whimsical fixtures, materials, and accessories creates the perfect home for our east coast gal.

    My favorite thing you selected for Katie isn’t pictured here. It’s the vintage first-aid kit found on Etsy. What do you recommend for her wall colors. The contractor colors in the Madrigal are just pitiful.

      Hi Scott! I have to say the vintage Etsy piece is one of my favorites too – we’ll be showing that along with all the other products next week so stay tuned! We’ve recommended a few beautiful grays from Benjamin Moore for the walls. Thanks so much for your feedback!

    Cool. Katie admired my custom D.C. Transit scroll. I can tell from the board that you plan to tie D.C. in in some way. Look forward to seeing the end result.
