Artist Kat O'Sullivan, aka Katwise, (along with help from her partner Mason Brown and their friends) transformed a dilapidated 19th century farmhouse in the woods near the hamlet of High Falls, New York into a technicolor dream house. Both inside and out, the dwelling is an awesome rainbow of colors and textures that still somehow looks right at home in the middle what we suspect to be an enchanted forest.

Colorful and filled with personality on both the interior and the exterior, the house was renovated according to O'Sullivan’s philosophy of “artistic upcycling,” which she explains as breathing new life into castaway objects. The final result, called Calico, is a gorgeous and unique house that is a perfect match for the artist’s dynamic lifestyle.

Head over to the Shawangunk Journal to read an interview with Katwise about her sensational home renovation. Then visit Katwise’s website to check out her other artistic endeavors.
