Go Love Your Room – Raina Kattelson

One of the very best things about the Blogging Your Way course has been the opportunity to ‘meet’ a bunch of really fab bloggers.

One such is Raina Kattelson, a fashion and interiors stylist from the Hudson Valley in New York state.

Her blog is full of interesting find and thoughts, but I was most blown away when I saw pics of her house. Which I completely adore.  It’s already been featured on Design*Sponge and Poppytalk, but I wanted to share it here as well.


Loving the green on the walls – works because everything else is simple and monochrome.


Well, except for the stunning collection of vintage ceramics. Absolutely loving how she’s styled these shelves. 


Love the little touches such as the place settings drawn on the table.


Another great collection of vintage knitting needles – MUST get myself on Ebay – and great desk inspiration for the Office Project.


Next job for us is getting the radiators stripped, though these are much lovelier than ours.



Favourite bit of the whole house = the stencil on the floor. 


Her daughter’s bedroom.  First ever use of chalkboard paint I actually like.


Isn’t it fantastic? Go and say hello to Raina over here. I’m feeling most inspired to finish painting the living room now.

    Raina’s husband is a hero! That’s a big job.
    LOVE the greeney-yellow paint, the bookshelves with the colored bits on them and the Ikea lamp. So refreshing!
    Thanks for this Paola – will have to check out her blog!

    This is great, beautiful post and Raina’s home is just as vibrant as she is – I love seeing a home that matches the home owner — perfection.

    Yep, it’s beautiful, and I shall steal from it ruthlessly. Love the way that the stencil looks like some out of control tendril that’s just wandered in.
