A Magically Colorful House in the Woods

Over the past few years artist Kat O’Sullivan (aka “Katwise”) has been transforming her Woodstock, New York home into a rainbow of crazy colors. I don’t even think we’ve seen a cartoon this bright before, but strangely enough, it fits into the natural landscape wonderfully. The place is now surrounded by wildflowers and appropriately called “Calico”.

Built in 1840, the home was in a state of neglect when Kat first bought it. With far more projects than expected, she readily admits she didn’t know what she was getting into. But with the help of her large group of friends (or “ninja elves” as she playful calls them), the place is now filled with creative personality and unique decorations. Let’s take a tour:
