Sweet Katie's Home

Dear Friends,
      From the moment you enter Katie's home you feel as if you have stepped into a European painting at the turn of the century. Your eyes are greeted with soft muted jewel toned textiles and fabrics. A mix of velvets and tapestry blend perfectly with warm wood. Old World vignettes of Religious Icons, sterling silver, oil paintings and glass cloches dazzle your eyes. Katie's has been collecting her treasures for many years and it is so apparent in their rarity. Enjoy the tour.

As in many of Katie's vignettes a beautiful woman bust is the center focus adding a strong feminine feel. A cattle tag amongst the tarnished silver adds a whimsical touch, a special number for Katie. All of this on top of a beautiful marble  serving board. Just beautiful.

Katie collects antique floral oils. This is a sample of her collection arranged above a darling antique half round table. Isn't this girl bust to die for? Absolutely precious. My eye stayed focused as well on the little angel clock. What a magnificent little jewel.

Katie's pride and joy is her extensive collection of antique religious figures. Madonna's, Santos and even a French zinc grave crosses can be found in her home. A loving devotion and collection. Her most favorite is the stunning Virgin Mary she acquired some years ago. Heavenly

Katie has a wonderful way of adding just the right amount of texture to her vignette. I loved how the sea fans, vintage equestrian ribbons, antlers and sheet music gently softened the more traditional elements creating eye candy at every view.

It was wonderful to see how over the years Katie has collected things that mean something to her. Family mementos, religious statues and treasures of the Old World. She is timeless in her design and when you love what you treasure your home becomes truly a home. Thanks Katie.
