This was served at a neighborhood gathering (pre-covid) and I had to share the's perfect for this Fall season! 

- 1tbs vegetable oil
- 1lb Italian sausage
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1tbs minced garlic
- 1 28oz can crushed               tomatoes
- 1 32oz box vegetable or         chicken broth
- 2tbs fresh chopped basil
- 1tsp salt
- 1tsp pepper
- 1 9oz packaged                    refrigerated tortellini 
- 2cups fresh spinach 

Heat a large, heavy bottomed pan over medium heat. Heat vegetable oil and add diced onions, saute until soft.

Crumble Italian sausage and garlic with onion. Cook until sausage is no longer pink.

Stir in crushed tomatoes, broth, basil, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover. Let soup simmer for 20-30 minutes.

Add tortellini and spinach and simmer for about 10 minutes until pasta is tender.

Serve with shredded parmesan and a crostini.

it's just a bunch of hocus pocus!

It seems that summertime has packed her bags and she didn't even say bye! Fall is HERE! The smells, the flavors, and the crisp cool weather has moved right on in and is here to stay. Time to retrieve your heavier throws and fall scented candles!

Whether it was brick or an old piece of furniture, there was a moment there when all of us wanted to paint everything white! Although this is good for so many things, sometimes leaving the natural state is better to provide depth and character in a space. I think we can agree that we all love white...but too much of one thing definitely looses its warm touch.

Kat Nelson Designs is about to reach a milestone...15 years of business in January! We thought we'd take a trip down memory lane to look back on some of our favorite past projects that we still get asked about today. Click on the photo for more images of each project!

One of our most popular projects. This, previously, formal living room was used 1x a year. It was dubbed the "Christmas Tree Room". It's now one of the most used rooms by this family for pre and post dinner conversations.

This dining room is still classic and functionally elegant.  Timeless furniture, hand-blocked linen drapery and , of course, a fabulous chandelier! There is nothing dated about this design.

This kitchen was created at the start of the modern farmhouse style. The long hardware, open shelves, simple cabinets, and wall sconces are still seen in current design projects.

With more people working from home in 2020, who couldn't use this large customized partner desk with outlets customized in the center of the desk and down one leg to the strategically placed floor outlet. Click on the photo to see hidden printer and file storage in the cabinets!

This not-that-old project will remain a classic.  A timeless table and chairs, lighting, and drapes allow this breakfast room to invite great conversation and meals together for a long time!

Another fun living room turned into a residential lounge for this family. A hint of gold and aubergine may not be accidental for this lady from Louisiana!

Another highly functional home office designed and installed just in time for 2020!

White sunbrella performance fabrics make this space functional - but everything else just makes this room pretty!

Acrylic and brass light fixtures and blue velvet chairs installed in 2016 are still classic for todays designs. Too bad you can't see the grass covered walls - click the photo for more...

More slipcovered furniture to allow the family pets to snuggle on the furniture. Collected mini tables grouped allow for everyone to have a piece of the coffee table!
