“Kelee’s approach to historical interior design is refreshing and rooted in period. Her twist of ‘va va voom’ brings period properties alive with a lot of soul. When I took the book Historic Style to the film industry speech I presented in London, I wish you could have seen peoples’ faces as I opened the book. Literally, HANDS WENT TO MOUTH with WOW!”

Anthony Barzilay-Freund

Editorial Director, 1stDibs, Introspective

“Kelee Katillac’s gift is to know how to build on a historic foundation and alchemize an old house into a wondrous environment any one of us would be fortunate to call home. That’s because Kelee’s approach to design feels vibrant and joyful, connected to the past but looking toward the future.”

Steve Larson

Co-Founder, Adelphi Paper Hangings:

“Our team was completely unprepared for the exuberance of Kelee Katillac’s vision! In Historic Style it’s gratifying to see these historic wallpaper patterns (with their reimagined colors) march, without hesitancy, into the 21st century.”

Kingsley Hammet

the late Founder and Publisher, Designer/builder Magazine:

“Kelee Katillac’s work reaches far beyond the walls of material structure. In fact, her philosophy implies that our lives and history can be changed by how we design our homes as places of origin and acceptance of ourselves and all others.”

Riley Price

National Trust for Historic Preservation / Executive Director,
Missouri Preservation/Places in Peril:

“Historic Style is as practical as it is indulgent. When it comes to saving historic places Katillac is a preservationist above all and lives by the “The Standards” for historic rehabilitation. With color, diversity and wit she shows us a way forward with fresh ideas and inspiration for even the most traditional among us.”
