Our Take On It 

Kate Hume's passion for interiors stems from her lifelong love affair with color and her respect for anything artisanal. Color, light and texture inform all of Hume's projects to create a distinctive style that is casually luxurious; bold patterns are expressed in rich, elemental hues. Though color drives her design schemes, it is never dominant. For Hume there is no wrong color, only wrong combinations.


Hume's inimitable approach to design favors tactile materials such as linen, grass cloth, silk, jute and impeccably sourced homespun fabrics. Unabashedly mixing different furniture genres, Hume prefers vintage over brand-new, considering for instance the best dining tables to look as if they've witnessed countless lunches and dinners. That is why she and her husband and collaborator, Frans van der Heijden, design their own pieces from sandblasted wood and brushed timbers where signs of age already exist. Exquisitely employing beautifully crafted furniture, intriguing objects, engaging color schemes and seductive, ambient lighting, Hume consistently demonstrates her mastery of eclectic, warm and sophisticated design.
