Katie took a simplified approach to decorating. Working with David Edward Wiegand, she chose fabrics, colors, and furniture with a decidedly Swedish influence. Muted gray cabinetry with a distressed finish and open shelves reinforce the room’s openness. The stainless steel appliances and sink add a sleek, metallic luster. Even the honed travertine marble countertops have a lightness.
Katie’s flooring choice—pine boards covered in a thin coat of watered-down paint—contributes to the ambience. “The floors have a soft appearance, and I love them because they look old,” she says.
