We first took note of Kate Payne's hypnotizing and down-to-earth brand of home style when we covered her cheery and colorful kitchen last year. One look at the warm and welcoming home she shares with her wife and it's obvious Kate loves the lost of art of homemaking (and luckily for everyone, she teaches those skills as an author and educator).
