The State Hotel

Custom Wallcoverings
in Collaboration with Vida Design

Inspired by Pike Place Market, the nine custom wallcoverings for The State Hotel highlight the bounty and delightful detritus of the historic downtown Seattle destination. 

Each design is a flamboyant mix of seafood, seasonal produce, flowers and souvenirs: a visual treasure hunt made up of hundreds of individually hand-drawn illustrations. 

Kate is an incredible artist with a fantastic personality to match.  We have worked with her on a variety of projects, and for each one she comes up with a unique style and vision.  She is able to handle the most minute details on a piece but also tackle large concepts for a series of pieces and execute seamlessly.  Her mastery of color is also really amazing – the nuances in her color palettes are so subtle yet impactful. 


In addition, she is great to laugh with and work with, an added bonus.
