At Home With Kat Evidente

At Home With Kat EvidenteWe are happy to welcome Kat Evidente to the blog today to share her lovely home with us! Sweet record cabinetDarling gallery wall"My husband, Leo, and I live in an 850 square foot, 1950s track home in a quiet neighborhood in Ventura, CA. I’ve grown to love every detail of it as we made it our own. It was not easy to create a more ideal space because we were limited to what we can do since our place is a rental. Good thing is, we both love a good challenge." Perfect record storage Love all these details Beautiful succulents"For the living area, we managed to acquire a good mix of midcentury-inspired and handmade pieces that tell who we are as a couple and as individuals. And since our living room is part office/work area, our main goal is to keep our home inspiring and cohesive. As wedding photographers, we believe that living in an inspiring and organized home will not only keeps us sane, and our minds fresh, but it will also bring out the creativity in us.

My favorite piece is our Danish modern credenza that we found in Los Angeles while combing through a row of midcentury furniture shops. We made it a home for some of our favorite items in the living room, such as our record player, books, and vinyl. We love how clean and simple it looks." Sweetest kitchenWire lighting fixtureLovely kitchen detailsAt Home With Kat Evidente via A Beautiful Mess"In addition to our living space, we are blessed to have a spacious backyard that we use for barbecues, dinners, board game nights, and cocktails almost every time we have friends and family over. The idea with the backyard is to keep it minimalistic (like the rest of the house,) because we appreciate the open space that it brings. Our outdoor space also offers a quick escape when we feel a bit burnout from processing a ton of photos that we deal with from time to time." Lovely back patio area Love the firepit on a pallet"Leo keeps himself busy with building wood furniture during his free time. In particular, he built our patio dining table and benches from scratch, among other things in our home. It’s always a blessing to be able to enjoy the fruits of his labor. His wood pieces are not only great but they make our place more like us." Perfect back patioThank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us, Kat!

  • Beautiful house! My favorite was the kitchen deco! <3

  • It is great to see a rental property in this feature. We are renting now and are not allowed to paint the walls or make any major changes to the house. This is inspiring and gave me a few ideas for our home. Thank you! Lovely!

  • This house is sooo retro and amazing! 🙂

  • Love your style and the mix of mid century vintage and hand made furniture , the house looks so warm and welcoming yet its modern, My grandma used to have that Danish creenza i’m so sorry my uncles didn’t keep it, thanks for sahring

  • This house is amazing! The art pieces that have been displayed are gorgeous and I love the styling in the house. All of the individual pieces give the house such character!

  • Quanta criatividade!!! Amei tudo!

  • I love this. I’ll be moving to a smaller space soon, so this is inspiring.

  • I really love the feel of this space. What a wonderful home

  • Yay for Ventura!! I live just outside of it.
    Cute home, cute yard space!

  • What a lovely home! I’m happy you chose to showcase a place on the small side, and a rental. It feels a bit more attainable.

  • Love this. We have a little house in LA and I have not been motivated to do any decorating until recently. We have the same firepit, I like the idea of raising it up on a pallet so the fire isn’t so low.

  • Lovely space, especially love the final shot with the string lights!

  • Mmmm, that backyard is wonderful. <3


  • such a beautiful house!!
    I’m so in love with their backyard’s lighting 🙂

  • Beautiful space, and gives a fellow apartment renter hope for our space!

  • So cute! I live in Ventura and think that her house is adorbs. Wish she was my next-door neighbor!

  • That big backyard feels so familiar to me! Growing up in Australia, suburban backyards were the things of childhood memories. Thanks for sharing.

  • such a big backyard! i’d settle for a tiny house if i had a yard like that… and if it looked as nice as this 😉

  • Cute! My fiance is from Ventura, and your decorating style seems pretty unique compared to many of the homes there–in a good way. Very inspiring and thanks for sharing!

  • How lovely!


  • Such a sweet home, it’s so personal without having made many drastic changes to a rented place, looks like a great garden too!

  • I love it so much! It doesn’t look like a rental, in that they did an incredible job making it theirs! Love it!
