Kate is a freelance interior stylist and interior design student living with her husband and cat in Queens, New York. She has always been obsessed with restaurants and hotels because of their amazing design details and is ecstatic to make a career of it. Her personal style is rustic modern or boho chic although she is passionate about helping friends and clients embrace their personal style to create a home that both speaks to and comforts them. When not working, Kate enjoys exploring the city and spending her time and money on the amazing food that NYC has to offer. She also loves romantic comedies, floral design and running. You can follow her on Instagram @fueledbywhimsy and visit her blog Fueled by Whimsy and you can stop by Laura Weatherbee Design Studio to see her guest design contributions. Take it away Kate:
When designing bedrooms I loooove the boho look but I often struggle with making bright colors and busy prints work together in harmony, especially in a smaller space. A trick that I have caught onto which interior designer Amber Lewis of Amber Interiors has mastered is blending several cheerful bohemian motifs with an equal amount of minimalistic and often solid colored neutral pieces to achieve a balanced yet unique look that is fun but not overwhelming.
