Meet Kate

Meet Kate

I am passionate about interiors and their ability to elevate everyday life. Life is short, love your home.

With a career in interiors, food styling and writing spanning nearly two decades, and a thirteen year tenure as Houses Editor and Interiors Editor at Australian House & Garden magazine, Kate shares her knowledge and experience through a monthly column, TV, awards and speaker panels.

A summer holiday to Italy in 2006 was the beginning of an enduring love affair with Busatti – the eponymous eight generation Italian fabric house in Anghiari, Tuscany with Kate opening the flagship Australian boutique in Transvaal Avenue, Double Bay in 2007. She champions the brand today through CASA by Studio Kate’s retail showroom and custom made soft furnishings and the studio’s award winning interiors.

“I am passionate about layers and textures, finding things you love and making a home your own. I love a comfortable, contemporary edge and the confidence to commit to what you love. I am personally drawn to the scale and sensibility of American furnishings and interiors (cue Nancy Meyers!) and the craftsmanship and patina of European design.” - Kate
