My Houzz: Kate Upton Gives Her Sister a Surprise Renovation
Christie Williams spends much of her time taking care of other people. In addition to raising two young daughters with her husband, Matt, she runs a nonprofit called Wins for Warriors that helps veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.
Model and actress Kate Upton, who happens to be Christie’s younger sister, knew that Christie wouldn’t find time to pamper herself, so Upton recently surprised Christie by renovating the couple’s outdated guest bathroom, office area and master bedroom and bathroom in their Melbourne, Florida, home. “Christie’s always been very nurturing to everyone around her, and she’s still like that today,” Upton says. “So all of my memories of her growing up were really her watching over me, so it’s nice to be able to reverse the roles and take care of her.”
Bold patterned tile and wallpaper, soothing shades of blue and touches of glamour gave the home just the right atmosphere for Christie and her busy family.
