Part of our “Tresham Reimagined” series, Art Director Katie Begalke puts her creative mind to work, using our Tresham collection to create a stylish retreat for her and Hildie, her Bernese mountain dog.
I am thrifty…okay, borderline cheap. I love vintage household items, pops of color and lots of texture. There is something about those eccentric flea market finds that just speaks to me.
When designing my space, I immediately knew I wanted to incorporate vintage elements, like my mom’s Nancy Drew collection and the preppy dog picture frames that I made. They bring color and texture to the room (as well as a little humor).
My overall inspiration was my dog Hildie. I chose colors that would compliment her markings and began searching out items that were traditional and preppy to fit with my vision of Kohler’s Tresham collection.
The final result is a room full of sentimental items and things that make me happy–overall it’s a space that I am comfortable and relaxed in. I do, however, wish I was a bit more daring with my use of color, but Hildie seems to like it.
