Kate also said color can make a huge impact on a space, as long as it’s introduced thoughtfully. If you’re not sure where to begin, choose one key color to use throughout the room. For instance, Kate recommended Aviel opt for something like a vibrant mustard yellow. You’ll see pops of it everywhere in Kate’s design, from the throw pillows, to the wall art, to the patterned rug. Since Aviel shares her apartment with her dog Chicken, Kate recommended a rug with a somewhat busy print — any stains from muddy paw prints or accidental spills will be easy to camouflage.
The common thread in all of Kate’s decor advice? Keep it cohesive. Sticking to one color palette, decor style, and overall vision will help your home come together. Whether you’re moving into a studio loft or multistory house, that advice will certainly serve you well.
