A Whimsical Rainbow House

You’re going to like seeing the whimsical rainbow house that sweaters built called Calico by Kat O’Sullivan. The house reflects her free-spirit and is an explosion of happiness. Kat has an Etsy shop for her signature recycled sweater coats and arm warmers that fuels her magical mystery tour psychedelic rainbow house renovation.

Kat and her husband Mason bought a cute little 1840 house in New York from a woman who lived there for 60 years. It needed a lot of work like a new roof, windows, floors, etc., and was under construction and renovation for a long time.

Kat said on her katwise.com site that a photo of her home has gone viral and some people think the house has been photo-shopped. It’s for real. She went to the paint store and brought home every color on the shelf.
