Katrine Hildebrandt and Carhartt

Katrine is a woman of many trades—ranging from interior design, retail styling, creating wooden sculptures and paper designs, to glass blowing. She invited me to her house while I was in Boston. I was so blown away by the space she and her husband, Peter, live in. I felt like I was taking a peek into a museum of their lives. Surfboards line the walls and their studio spaces flow seamlessly into the living space. Every nook and cranny is filled with something they’ve created or that’s important to them. Katrine’s interior design skills and up-cycled items create an inspiring and soulful environment. Take a look at the lamp Katrine is working on in the first few photos here. It’s made from vintage player piano paper, and each lamp has a different song streaming across it.

I also got to watch as they worked on a chandelier they are designing for a customer’s kitchen. (Check out some of their other collaborative work here.) It’s great to see a couple work so well together. In fact, they first met in a glass blowing class. I love a couple who works together and wears Carhartt together!
