Kateovation: Wowza in Woodlawn!

Updated: Feb 19

Another Kateovation is complete (and sold!). This one was my most expensive purchase and it was a lot of fun. The house has been on the market for many months, it was very dated and needed a lot of work to make it livable. Once I purchased, I immediately started creating my inspiration board and green bubbled to the top. I wanted to do a monochromatic look = so we did the body and trim the same color - with pops of terra cotta to highlight the colors in the beautiful chimney.


I was feeling that this house wanted a little glamour and the size of the primary suite felt like it deserved it. Black marble, bold patterned floor and gold accents brought the bathroom to life. I replaced the old laminate kitchen countertops with solid surface and chose a marble-like floor to pair with the original hardwood floors. I liked the warmth of the wood cabinets (and prefer the sustainable choice to keep them if they are in good condition!) - and found an accent wallpaper that felt like it would tie in the wood, white and black hardware. It featured a lovely green that became the inspiration for the backsplash.


One of my favorite features of the house was the studio! A 600sf studio was built as a pre-school for the previous owners - but I felt like it would be a really cool Airbnb or guest suite. The color inspiration came from the shower curtain, randomly! I just loved the rich tones and with dark wood counters and black cabinets - the gold backsplash really rocked it!
