Kate Upton Puts the ‘Model’ in Remodel With This Surprise Home Makeover
Kate Upton‘s name may be synonymous with supermodel style, but let it be known: She’s *way* more than just a pretty face. Upton recently partnered with Houzz to create a runway-ready redo of her older sister’s Florida home, just in time for National Sibling’s Day. The results are exactly as stylish as you’d expect from this famous face.
In the latest installment of the video series My Houzz, which features celebrities surprising their families with upgraded spaces, Upton tackled sister Christie’s inner sanctum. The selected rooms had plenty of square footage, but the master bedroom and bath were really a blank slate at best. “Christie always takes care of everyone around her and puts herself last, so I wanted to do something meaningful for her,” says Upton of the remodel. Upton worked with local design-build firm Motivo Home to transform both areas into something that would inspire chill vibes and a bit of pampering.
A playful mix of prints in muted hues gives a calming effect to the new room, which even includes a cozy spot for the family pooch to curl up. With a growing family, Christie and husband Matt are no strangers to stress, but this remodel was aimed at giving them a place to truly chill out. “I’m blown away with the renovation, and so happy to give her a place to relax and rejuvenate,” Upton says.
The existing bathroom was dated and poorly organized — not exactly a space that invites the homeowners to linger and focus on self-care. With the help of Motivo, Upton elevated the design to something more befitting her superstar sister and hubby (including his-and-hers chandeliers, of course).
