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.
It’s like a big bright patchwork quilt.
It was a lot of work clearing the brush away from the pond.
This plain jane little white house became
this incredible piece of art rainbow house. Every section of the house is different including the inside too.
Cat In The Hat chimney.
Kitchen before and after with a bold blue repainted oven and………..
this unique penny table and counter that took almost a year to complete.
Retro 50s dining table and chair that I love and this style is making a big come back in decorating. One of their first renovations was this big, bright window.
They found the stained glass windows from an old mansion from Craigslist.
I think they could sell tickets for a walk through their home especially for these stairs that by sight seems to defy the laws of psychics. Hang on to the rail!!!!!!
My favorite is their homemade library. The center is a clever speakeasy built-in bar.
The house, bus and even some of the sweater coats remind me of The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine, and Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band record album covers.
There is so much more to see of Calico, rainbow house like the bug room, hallway of faces and
other lavish rooms. It’s all just wow.
Kat has so much talent it jumps off the page. Here’s a look at her one of her recycled sweater coat styles.
Things do pile up when you’re busy creating.
Please visit her Etsy shop at Katwise Etsy Shop. I am a big fan and recommend following Kat on Facebook to keep up with her creations. Kat just revealed her “upcoming Musicals Collection in all shapes and sizes will be for sale starting this January 29th.”

Kat and her house and sweater coats are full of so much happiness, I am addicted.
