Get the Look Decor: Signs of Peace

Oct 31, 2010

Christine

This weekend’s Get the Look Decor is inspired by the Decatur, Georgia home of Katy Walker. She lives with her mischievous kitty surrounded by an eclectic mix of cottage, farmhouse, woodland and seaside collections that offer reminders of her past. Not only does her home embody the various locations she’s lived in, it also reflects the places she hopes to one day visit.

Inspired by the mood and feeling of an object or work of art, Katy says, “Any pictures or spaces that make me feel serene and happy cause me to pause and think about how I can infuse aspects of that into my own home. Life can be so chaotic, so I want my home to be a place where I can find calm when I need it.”
