Kat O’Sullivan, alias Katwise, specializes in the art of upcycling and life itself. She has now transformed a dilapidated farmhouse from 1840. The house, which is in High Falls and therefore not far from Woodstock, has been reinterpreted in a new, colourful way.
The project, known as Calico, has all the colours of the rainbow and is an unexpected eye-catcher in the idyllic, hilly landscape. O’Sullivan and her partner Mason Brown have been working on this house project since 2009. Like O’Sullivan’s main area of work – upcycling textiles into new, sought-after garments – the house project has taken an old, discarded object and resuscitated it.
As shown in the photos below, the interior of the house matches its exterior in terms of its fairy-tale style.
