Apartment LOVE: Catherine Kwong

Remember a few weeks back I mentioned that Rue Magazine really killed it in their latest edition? Well the feature with 7 young designers and their homes was what I was talking about.

And today, I'm sharing one of these: Catherine Kwong.

Catherine's home was a 70s dream that she was able to strip down to its bones and make into a 2010s dream. Starting with her inspiration from a certain J.Crew President and Creative Director I tend to talk about often's Brooklyn Brownstone, which was published in an old Domino Magazine. [p.s. It's back and I totally called it and I totally love it.] We're talking about Jenna Lyons.

She called Lyons' home, "the townhouse that launched a thousand remodels...it spoke to me because it's so beautifully balanced, with vintage elements but a decidedly modern look - glamorous but comfortable." And Catherine put a California spin on this for her home.

As she says, "Homes are not the same as showrooms. They should invite you in and put you at ease."
