My Apartment

We just sent the August issue of Matchbook live and my California apartment is inside. It was 500 square feet (including the unpublished bath, kitchen, and closets!), but I like to think good things come in small packages. As you may know, we moved to New York yesterday so seeing the piece has me hopelessly homesick. A special thank you to my dear friend Cooper Carras for the photos. I tried to list as many sources as possible below, but if you’re wondering where I found something feel free to ask in the comments! xx

    1. in love with your desk + desk area – the stack of books on the floor is great.
    2. I tried to track down that tortoiseshell pen you have but have not had any luck at the Met!
    3. it looks amazing and I can’t wait to dig through the magazine tonight!

    good luck with your new apartment!

    Your place is lovely! So perfectly styled yet casual and welcoming. My favorite pattern mixing was the bedding/headboard—so good. Where on earth did you find the brass floor reading lamp in your living room?

  3. Sydney

    Yes, I must know where you got the brass floor lamp in the living room, the gold bamboo mirror, and the black and white rug (I assume in the bedroom)! I love the mix of colors and textures! So chic and homey at the same time.

    Oh lovely, lovely, lovely (the apartment and you)! Filled with books, artwork and flowers – it’s just how I pictured it ;)

  5. Carmen

    I love the decoration of your previous place! I’m sure your place in NY will be equally lovely. I have a question, where did you get the wide gold cuff?

    If a woman’s hair style is the final tip-off of whether a woman knows herself, a well-curated apartment must be a close second. Bravo! It was so fun to get a peek inside of your home, and I can’t wait to see what you’ll do with the new place!

    I also loved the portion about your style. Over the past year, my style has begun to transition and I’ve been in search of the perfect Ts. I follow you on instagram and you seem to have discovered the perfect, flattering vnecks, one of which you’re wearing in the feature this month. Are you faithful to a specific brand when it comes to casual Ts or do you shop around? I’d love to know!

    Ah your apartment is so cute! I love the coffee table and bookshelf styling – especially the top of the bookshelf! Coral is one of my decorating favs.

    Katie, This is absolutely beautiful! Are you an interior designer? I would love to see some blog posts with interior design tips. I always struggle with that and you seem to have the art perfected!

    read the new matchbook yesterday – congratulations on another fabulous issue! that said, i am obsessed with your coffee table and i can’t believe you found it on craigslist! i literally search once every couple weeks for lucite tables, so you truly hit the jackpot! looking forward to seeing how you style you new york digs sometime in the future!

    You’ve been holding out on us! What loveliness! I’m so inspired by the matching curtains and screen, and really love your selection of artwork. Can’t wait to see your NY home!

    Hey, I didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye. Miss your sweetness already. I will be in NYC next week so if you miss anything from home email me and I will bring it with me.

  12. Kelly

    I LOVE your apartment, how beautifully decorated in such a happy way. Can’t wait to see a feature on your East Coast digs! Hope settling in is going well!

  13. Alison

    I am incredibly inspired! Your home is as chic as I would expect and downright lovely! Can’t wait to see how your beautiful furniture translates in your NY home!

    So incredibly chic – and I only just learned in Matchbook that you had been living in my home town (Alameda!) until recently! I moved to the east coast (Providence) going on four years ago now, but I still miss the little island in the bay. :) xo Laura
