Velvet Queen



Katie Kime is my design muse. I discovered her on social media over a year and a half ago and have been girl crushin' hard ever since. Like me, she is a lover of all things bright, white, gold and lucite. Her designs and accent pieces are bold and add character to any space. SHE IS A DESIGN GODDESS. Make sure you checkout her website.

When I decided to move into a one-bedroom last year, I realized that I had absolutely no living room furniture and not a big budget to buy new stuff. With the help of my crafty mother, I decided to refurbish my grandmother's couch and other hand-me-down pieces that I had received from friends or found on my neighbor's curb on trash day. The results? A living room filled with revived antiques, bright velvet, white lacquer and lucite/gold accents.

Marcelo Montgomery did all of my upholstery and he is absolutely amazing! Although I ordered all of the fabric for my pieces, he is the one that truly brought them back to life. If you have furniture that needs a little TLC, send it to him. The man can work wonders!
