The Art of Choosing Art

One of the best ways to add character to your home is through the use of art. Pictures and paintings can finish a room and act as a defining feature for your home's style. It can be moving, special, and highlight memories you never want to forget. Of course, we know sometimes it can be tricky to figure out what to pieces choose, especially when that blank wa[...]

Five Favorite Projects of 2018

Can you believe 2018 is over? It went by way too fast! But, I have to say, it was a great year of design, so I thought it would be fun to look back at some of our favorites projects of 2018. Of course, we love all the designs we get to be a part of, so while it was definitely hard to choose, we narrowed it down to five--all of them different and special in t[...]

Tips for a Bedroom Retreat

After all the holiday hustle and bustle, it seems like having a place to retreat is more important than ever. At the end of the day, when you've finished work, dinner, and picking up the house, there's no better feeling than going to your bedroom and plopping down on a big comfy bed in a space you truly love. This is doubly true for those of you who have mad[...]

A Nautical Nursery

This next project is a cute one! When our client's first grandchild was born, she wanted to make sure her house was equipped with a nursery for sleepovers at Grandma's (which we totally love). But, rather than going full "baby", we helped her achieve a more classic design with a coastal theme so this room would last for years to come. We kept this in mind wh[...]

Modern Hawaiian Remodel

After twenty-five years in the original design of their house, our clients were ready for an update. We had already redesigned their downstairs living space, which you can check out HERE, so this time we moved upstairs to remodel their master suite and guest room. Living only a few miles from the ocean and being lovers of Hawaii, we knew their master bedroom[...]

A Bright and Airy Update

Older homes often come with plenty of potential, and if you’re willing to put in the work, that potential can turn into a home with tons of charm! That was the case with this historic coastal home. After designing the master bedroom and family room (which you can see HERE), the living and dining space was up next. Beginning as a fully wood paneled room, it f[...]

Elegant Outside

Bringing a backyard to life is about more than making sure there's enough seating for BBQs and get-togethers. We take into account the purpose of the space, the size, the way it connects to the interior of the home, and of course, the elements. Once we've figured out those aspects, it's time to bring our vision to life and create a space that invites its own[...]

Not Your Mama’s Southwest Style (Part 2)

Welcome to part two of Not your Mama’s Southwest Style! (You can check out part one HERE). As I mentioned in part one, Southwest style can get a bad rap, so if it makes you think of the 80’s—erase that idea. No peach, no turquoise, and no white wicker here. When it comes to today’s Southwest style, we want to create a natural look with pops of color and char[...]

A Playful Project!

Whenever we get a new client, they become a part of the Kathy Ann Abell Interiors family. After all, they allow us to bring our creativity and influence into the place they call home, the very space where they make memories and live everyday life. So, of course, whenever we get the chance to revisit a past client, it's like visiting another part of our desig[...]
