You know how much I admire the style of artist and author Kate Schelter (remember her colorful Manhattan home?), so it’s no surprise that this new tour of her Cape Cod residence made my morning. Published by Architectural Digest, the charming property is just three houses away from Kate’s grandmother’s home. The artist shares the 18th-century saltbox with her husband and their daughter, Charlotte. Upon moving in, she gave the place quite a makeover—painting floral murals on the bedroom walls and sanding and painting the floors herself. Below, explore more of the sweet New England summer house and find my suggestions on how you can get the Kate Schelter look in your own home.
