Double the Kates, double the dates, double the trouble!
Some crazy fun stuff went down when Joey and I recently headed over to West Hollywood to decorate the new apartment of our recently engaged friends, Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz. If you’ve ever watched Vanderpump Rules on Bravo or seen them on Instagram (check out Katie’s account here and Tom’s here), you already know that these two are the very opposite of boring. Yes, they are reality TV darlings but they are soooo much more! Katie runs a lifestyle blog called Pucker & Pout because she is a DIY and beauty lover herself – side note she is also a big wearer of Mr. Kate jewelry and BeautyMarks, which is how we connected in the first place! And Tom, is the funniest mactor (model/actor) around, with quite an impressive vocabulary.
It was only fitting that Joey and I gave them a living room and dining room that would be the perfect scenery for their exciting lives. They recently moved in to this loft style apartment and needed some good compromise design that captured Katie’s love for vintage glam and Tom’s desire for a clean, cohesive and hip space.
This was a completely different style of makeover than we did for Maya’s drag queen-themed loft, so I was excited to bring some modern sophistication into play for this soon-to-be-married pair and their cute pup, Gordo.
Check out the episode above (no Vanderpump drama, sorry!) and some shots of the apartment before and after below!
