We want to send a big thank you to everyone who participated in our Instagram Giveaway run by our good friend Kelsey Delange from HoneyandtheHive! The collaboration between Kate & Laurel and Honey and the Hive was a fantastic success! A winner has been chosen, so special congratulations go to TheAmazingRose or as her friends know her, Rose Carle. Rose was the winner of the Grand Prize of a $100 gift card to Kate and Laurel as well as a $50 gift card to Honey and the Hive.Each participant was asked to write a comment on how they would use their prize to make their home lovelier and more joyful in order to enter the giveaway. Rose was sweet enough to let us share her entry: “How I’d love to make my home a more joyful home if given the opportunity: I’d LOVE to add some pins to my BattleVest and add more greenery around the house with a plant stand or maybe even a bangin’ shelf or two!” Her winning comment was randomly selected and was crowned the winner!
Honey and the Hive blogger, Kelsey Delange, suggested the collaboration inspired by the functional and stylish furniture and organization pieces we have at Kate & Laurel. After a thorough look through our site, she chose a great set up to inspire her followers and put together a home office space that allows her to create her beautiful illustrations and run her very busy family.
Kelsey chose a mainly white color palette complemented with natural woods and mixed metals including pops of her own color. The products she started with to design a solid home base for her workstation were the Kaya Pub Table and the Welborn Bar Stools. That set up is a great choice and just the right height for what she needed.
Then she got to work creating an organized command center that would keep all her important papers and supplies together in one place. She chose the Wallcott line for her dry erase wall calendar and wall pockets. And the 23.5 x 15.5 framed magnetic Bosc Chalkboard was the obvious selection to include as a way of accomplishing the pulled together look she was going for. Now she always knows where everything is, and she has easy access to it.
To add a little visual interest and make space for her plants and books, she hung the very pretty Vista shelves and displayed one of our Stroud candle holders too. It’s a perfect match with the high-shine brass metal accenting both pieces.
The Francesca desktop organizer was an obvious selection to tidy up her pens, pencils, and papers. It has a beautiful satin finish, several compact compartments and a wide pocket in the back that's big enough for a standard folder.
Finally, she used the Marmora Wood Tray as a perfect place to add some lovely feminine touches that she says put her in a good mood for doing her work.
“I truly couldn't be happier with how this space came together, it serves so much purpose in our home and now sorting through the mail, meal planning, and handling all of the responsibilities of our family is actually something that I enjoy and find peace in,” she said.
