It’s almost the end of another year, and another December means a whirlwind of holiday shopping, home decorating, and winter wonderland celebrating. Who better to feature for our newest edition of Local Praise than our very own Invision bride Tatum Singley and the lifestyle gurus of The Kate & Tate Collective? If you’re anything like us, you’re sure to love their classic and grounded style that features fun and modern twists. These two ladies are just what you need to accent your home and wardrobe perfectly, and without breaking the bank.
What’s the story and inspiration behind The Kate & Tate Collective?
The owners of The Kate & Tate Collective, Katey and Tatum, both individually have always dreamed of owning a lifestyle store. After quitting their jobs and both becoming stay-at-home wives, they decided to merge their ideas into a collective. After several Taco Tuesdays of planning, The Kate & Tate Collective was born.
What can someone expect to find when perusing your collective?
The Kate & Tate Collective is a lifestyle brand with a collection of various goods. We are an online boutique with a lovely collection of items such as fun fab jewelry, cute basics for your wardrobe, amazing candles, classic home decor and accessories, tablescape items perfect for hosting your next event or dinner party, and select design services for your custom needs.
How would you describe y’alls style?
A modern twist on classic style!
What is the hottest trend you’re seeing in personal and home decor?
The classics are most definitely making a come back! We are thrilled to see that blue & white and chinoiserie has come back in style, although we feel that it never truly was out of style. We love mixing patterns and textures along with taking a casual approach to a more elegant and refined aesthetic.
Just for fun, what’s your must-have go to accessory?
When it comes to fashion, earrings can really make a statement and dress up your outfit without trying too hard. When it comes to home décor, any type of greenery (whether fresh or faux), citrus and fruits, and adding in an accent pop of color. Our favorite way to add a pop of color is with our blue & white ginger jars.
