Get to know Kate's home and discover the selection of Lick paint now adorning her walls...
Kate Young is an award-winning New York-based stylist, who has dressed celebrity clients that include Margot Robbie, Sienna Miller, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz. And with high-profile collaborations with brands such as Dior and Carolina Herrera under her belt, it’s certainly obvious that she has immaculate taste and a keen eye for design.
Living in the heart of New York City, Kate shares her Brooklyn home with her husband and two sons. In a historic building bursting with character, Kate's family home has a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere with curated colourful accents and bespoke vintage pieces. Since purchasing the property several years ago, Kate has slowly made her mark on many of the rooms, moving away from white walls and building colour palettes inspired by her collection of artworks and bold items of furniture.
Unlike many people who search the internet for ideas, Kate’s home’s aesthetic is continually inspired by vintage magazines and interior design books from the 1970s, which is reflected in the warm tones and plush furnishings in her stylish living room. With her newfound enthusiasm for all things home design, she is turning her passion into reality. "Fashion was my hobby before I made it my job and now because I do that all day at work, for fun I now like to look at interiors,” she explains to Tash Bradley, our Director of Interior Design in her home tour. “I really like design, I like colour and I like beautiful things.”
Working with us on the renovation of her two sons’ bedrooms and her office, Kate wanted to continue the relaxed, pre-loved feel of the communal spaces but allow each of her son’s rooms to have a distinct personality. As a fan of mixing untraditional colours, with unexpected tonal accents in each room, she worked with us to elevate her home’s decor while staying true to her eclectic approach to finding colour combinations.
For her younger son, Kate brainstormed with Tash before choosing Teal 01, a tone inspired by patterned wallpaper she sourced in Europe and one that perfectly complements the vintage brown leather seat her son uses to play video games.
