kate lewis paintings

by Grace Bonney

I’m a little sleepy this morning, so I thought I’d wake myself up with some colorful paintings from artist Kate Lewis. Kate’s paintings of interiors have a loose, organic feel that reminds me of a quick sketch — in the best way possible. They feel as though she joined the homeowner for a cup of tea and happened to have a palette with her to document the moment. Each is a quick peek inside a beautiful room, focusing on small details like fabrics, flowers or lighting. You can check out all of Kate’s paintings right here; it’s fun to see some of the design trends we’ve been covering for the past few years immortalized in paintings (kilims, anyone?). xo, grace
