Hey – I’m Kate! The brain-woman behind Kate Pearce Vintage, a vintage-inspired brand focused on eclectic and sustainable living.
I’m mama to Eva + Josie – two little red-haired girls who run my world. But second to all of that, art and home decor are my passions, and I’ve spent most of my adult life exploring these fields. My super-duper husband and I also love tackling home renovation, and this is a major topic explored through the blog on this site.
To clue you in on a bit of my background, I spent the first half of my twenties nailing down a B.A. and M.A. in Art History (with a specialization in both gender studies and Modern European Art). Immediately after graduating, I scored some pretty dope curatorial internships at places like the Guggenheim, the Phillips Collection, The Smithsonian Museum of American Art, the Whitney Museum and Doyle New York. Then I got sick. Real sick. And when I got a bit better, I was inspired to switch things up! I applied to Columbia University’s post-baccalaureate program in Pre-Medical Sciences, and a few months later I found myself on W.116th street in Calculus class.
Am I confusing you? Are you all like, “what the hell is this girl about?”
Well, it turns out medicine wasn’t for me. I’m here, with Kate Pearce Vintage and loving it. I also run an Instagram page with more than 35K followers, and often collaborate with like-minded brands to promote their art and home decor products. And, at the heart of Kate Pearce Vintage is all the mid-century modern and art deco vintage pieces that I style in my home, and then send off to yours. 😉
