While the KD ladies may be engaging in remote learning to begin their college year, their newly styled sorority house is anxiously awaiting their arrival...glittering with updates!
The Sigma Iota Chapter of Kappa Delta on the University of Washington campus was overdue for a refresh. Lemme tell you...their living room furnishings in their Formal had definitely been loved! And, their co-ed space was not only outdated, it was not properly suited for over a hundred young ladies and their guests.
Incorporating their sorority colors, adding functional performance to each piece and giving their first floor a new vibe was our goal. I was given the task of appeasing 130 active members while catering to thousands of alumnae steeped in tradition!
The result is breath-taking! I am obsessed with the color story, just enough of everything! In the co-ed room we created a Pacific Northwest feel, adding gorgeous artwork and playing off the paint colors with our textiles. We have increased the seating arrangements while keeping both rooms easy to navigate. I can not WAIT for the girls to enjoy it!

The UW Kappa Delta ‘Formal Living Room’ designed in the 60’s. The gold striped wallpaper, turquoise carpeting throughout and a big white crescent couch reigned until 2010. Picture provided by Ginger Whelan, class of '67.
My daughter and I are both KD’s from Washington State University, so this was a VERY special project. Reuniting with college life, feeling at home surrounded by Kappa Delta sisters and knowing exactly what the women needed, made this project so magical and rewarding!!
We styled the room, now all you have to do is start shopping!
When I was approached with a 1940’s Mid Century Modern project you might have thought it would be out of my wheel-house!Read more
