Welcome to Over at Kates! I’m Kate and I am an interiors obsessive. Ever since I can remember I have always loved planning re-decoration projects. I am at my happiest when researching colour schemes and sourcing something new for my home…or someone elses for that matter!

In January of 2015 my husband and I moved into our Edwardian semi which had been rather neglected by the previous owners, and as a result was looking more than a little tired. Since then we have worked hard to transform it from house to home and inject some personality into what had become a rather unloved space. We’re about half way through with our plans, and I’m hopeful we’ll get a few more underway very soon. I have been sharing our progress on Instagram and of course here on my blog and have been overwhelmed by all the lovely comments and feedback I have received.

I was thrilled when our house was featured in the January 2016 edition of Style at Home magazine as well as on their sister site House To Home as well as on one of my favourite blogs Rock My Style.

My own personal style I would describe as traditional with a modern, contemporary twist, however I can appreciate all styles of design. I understand that a room needs to be practical and functional as well as beautiful, and I’m passionate about proving that you don’t need to spend a fortune to create a stylish space.
