The Fabulous Kate Hume
October 6, 2011Posted by on
Venturing to Russia several times over the years, I’ve come to adore the gilt and glamor of the country’s aesthetic. So when I recently came across this pied-a-terre in Moscow designed by Kate Hume, I was instantly captivated. Based in The Netherlands but commissioned all over Europe, Kate’s elegantly eclectic interiors are evidence of a well-traveled, richly influenced, fearless designer who clearly knows what’s gorgeous.
Kate’s clients in Moscow called on her to design a space to accommodate their busy lives, three children and collection of 20th Century Russian art. Quite a daunting request, I’d imagine, yet she makes it seem easy! Inspired by the metallic glow of Moscow’s architecture, Kate created an elegant yet functional space, done mostly in a neutral palette, that is simply stunning.
