Kate’s Room Made Lovely


Welcome to Room Made Lovely, a special part of the Home Made Lovely series.

Hi there!  My name is Kate (Katie if you have known me since elementary school) and I blog over at Songs Kate Sang.  I have been married for 13 years and we have 2 wonderful children.  Very soon, we will have another little to call our own.  We are going through the process of adoption and have a very special two year old living with us right now.

We are native Texans and we have been in Arizona for almost five years.

Thank you so much for having me, Heather!

I can remember when I stumbled onto blogland and found people who called their decorating style ‘granny chic’ or ‘vintage french country’.

I fell in love with the pictures and knew that I loved the freedom that came with these styles – just love what you decorate with.

Take little corners and make them happy.

When you walk by a shelf, you should smile – either because you think it is adorable or it brings you a very happy memory.

When you walk into my home (and I hope you will sometime!  I love having friends over!), you turn right and see this room.

When we moved in, I wasn’t sure what to do with this space.  It was a large open area that has a slanted wall.   We moved to Arizona from Texas and I had never really seen a room like this.  I was stumped.

It became our piano and reading room!

I listen to my daughter play piano and I open my mail here.

It has great floorspace for matchbox cars and legos.

The framed poster on the right was a wedding present from my love.

He knew I loved Monet.

Am I crazy about a framed poster?  Nope.  But I love that he picked out something to give me for our wedding.  It’s a keeper.

The vintage radio – from freecycle.  (Have you heard of freecycle?  No?!  Google it, then do it.)

My husband is a dumpster treasure finder.  On any given Saturday morning, you can find him at garage sales finding amazing deals.

Thanks for taking a peek into my home and I hope you feel like finding a corner of your home and making it happy!
