Nestled near the base of the Catskill Mountains in New York, you’ll find what can arguably be described as the world’s most colorful home. A labor of love, every visible surface of this 1840s home has been given a coat of paint by artist Kat O’Sullivan (and a group of very supportive friends). The result is a structure that seemingly spans the entire perceivable color spectrum.
Inside, the home takes on a life of its own: a hallway of heads, checkerboard stairs, a ballroom filled with gilded frames. The entire property is imbued with a sense of wild creativity and uninhibited imagination — blending, oddly enough, quite perfectly with the wilderness that surrounds it.
When she’s not adding new structural shapes (those round windows!) or painted patterns to her home, Kat pours her creative efforts into her incredibly successful business making and selling patchwork coats made from thrifted sweaters. These recycled creations are just as colorful and jaw dropping as her home. (Check out her Etsy shop for more!)
