When she talks abut her kitchen, you realize that she’s describing more than just a place to cook—it’s a cozy living area with an antique limestone mantel and a sun-drenched breakfast area.
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.
