At Dwelling in Pasadena with Kate Stamps


For the many fans of the classically inspired interiors of Kate and Odom Stamps, every glance at their charming and multi-layered home in their popular Instagram feed triggers a multitude of happy and admiring comments. Maybe it’s because their interiors are the opposite of so much sameness we see now. In fact, these are not perfect rooms, but seemingly unstudied rooms that exude comfort, personality and attitude to life.

Odom, the architect of the Stamps and Stamps duo, has experience renovating older houses and has creatively reinterpreted his original coach house from 1904 without increasing the space required and yet doubling the living area. It still retains its cottage feel, but now offers additional space to accommodate the many books and collections.

For a house in Los Angeles, Odom designed a new loggia below with bold columns and treillage, the floor of which was taken from a ruined French castle, and Kate designed a mix of new and antique furniture and accessories. For all lovers of timeless style and calm, refined luxury, the book is a wonderful addition to your design library. Signed copies can be ordered through the Stamps and Stamps website.
