The classically inclined designer dishes on mixing and mingling, the importance of scale and the power of patterns.
Known for her candy-colored interiors and rich material combinations, interior designer Kati Curtis has fashioned her body of work around crafting visual stories inspired by the vibrant personalities that call them home. It’s Kati’s artistic approach and eclectic portfolio of projects that’s kept her in constant rotation on the shelter magazine circuit. Here, we tapped Kati to find out what she’s most looking forward to at this year’s WNWN… along with a few other necessary details.

Town or Country… City girl
Design is… Magic.
Fave 200 Lex floor… 10th Cream is the new Gray
Fabrics are… important to get right—patterns are always in my work, but it’s all in how you mix them that makes their use successful.
Furniture can… go horribly wrong—scale and proportion are key.
Comfort looks like… Layers.
Luxury for me is… Time.
Art will… transform your space and needs to be very personal—buy what you love, not for investment.
