Kathy, the Senior Supervising Producer at The Dr. Oz Show and founder of Pink Tank Productions, has a serious eye for design. Her meatpacking studio is the perfect mix of chicness and functionality.
Pink Tank Productions aims to amplify female voices in media. Kathy has worked in TV for over 15 years (yes, 15!), and her #1 priority is mentoring young women who are growing their own brands. Kathy has personally been a huge mentor to me and has inspired me to be a voice for other entrepreneur women. You will see many blush accents in her home, which speak to her feminist side.
When designing her living space, she took cues from neighboring New York attractions, such as The Whitney Museum and The Highline. Art is something not lacking in Kathy’s home; the wall pieces represent voices of women and her love for color.
As Kathy lives in a smaller space, it was essential to keep the area feeling open while still bringing in the color that she loves. The oversized painting above the sapphire blue velvet couch is by Italian artist, Anyes Galleani. It juxtaposes high fashion photography with an airport tarmac, representing urban flare. The artwork is the perfect contrast against the white wall.
The coffee table decor is simple, yet is so distinctive. Johnathan Adler’s peace sign and the balloon dog incorporates a chic element into the small living space.
Kathy bought this sculpture from Zoe Bachman’s “Let Her Rave” show where she heard her speak about female empowerment. Kathy has always admired Zoe’s empowering work and fearless spirit. This specific piece is a boxing glove fashioned from a wedding dress. #G I R L P O W E R. The wall art behind the sculpture, by Alea Lovely, are studies of women’s bodies with a pink and black color palette that matched Pink Tank’s logo perfectly. This art represents images of how women see their own bodies, devoid of the male gaze.
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, but for Kathy, it’s the bar. By nature, she’s an entertainer and a top-notch host (but really, she is the best host I know). She is constantly hosting friends and family; therefore having the perfect bar area is essential! Her bar cabinet is whimsical and inviting, with many blush accents to represent female empowerment.
