At home in Pasadena with Kate Stamps
For many fans of Kate and Odom Stamps’ classically inspired interiors, each takes a peek into their charming house layered on their popular Instagram feed elicits a multitude of happy and admiring comments. Maybe that’s because their interiors are the antithesis of much of the sameness we see now. They are indeed not perfect rooms, but rather seemingly unstudied spaces that exude comfort, personality and the feeling of living.
Experienced in the renovation of old houses, Odom, the architect of Stamps and stamps duo, creatively reinvented their original 1904 carriage house without increasing the footprint but doubling the living space. It still retains its cottage feel but now offers additional space to incorporate their many books and collections,
as well as a variety of spaces for reading, relaxing and entertaining effortlessly.
Likewise, Kate has created interiors with charm, sensitivity and respect for history and place. With multiple layers, its rooms exude character, comfort and soul.

With a passion for antiques and textiles and an impressive knowledge of decorative arts and architecture, Kate and Odom continue to strive for authenticity, quality and attention to detail in all of their work.
Their new book, Tampons and tampons, style and sensitivity shares both his own home and a selection of projects. While featured homes may vary in style, from bohemian, below,
in formal georgian, they share a layered eclecticism that resonates personally with every guest. Odom increased the charm by adding skylights in the bedroom below, which Kate filled with an attractive range of textiles, antiques, and art.
For a home in Los Angeles, Odom designed a new loggia with bold columns and trellis, underneath, with flooring salvaged from a demolished French castle and Kate furnished with a mix of new and old furniture and accessories. For all lovers of timeless style and calm and sophisticated luxury, the book is a wonderful addition to your design library. Signed copies can be ordered through the Stamps and Stamps Website.
