Catherine's house tour finally made it to Apartment Therapy! It was supposed to go live on Thursday, but there was a glitch in our posting program, and it didn't get posted until today. You can check it out here.
Catherine was totally delightful, and hilarious! It's so much fun to walk into a home that's both cozy and interesting, and lived in. Anyone that knows me also knows that I could spend an entire day looking through shelter magazines. "Done up" homes are such a treat to look at, esp. in a magazine, but real homes--ones that are full of the personalities of the people who live there--are something special. They are a hundred times more inspiring than anything I see in magazines because I get to see how the inhabitants have worked around certain obstacles and how they've incorporated hand-me-downs, heirlooms, and "placeholder" furnishings into their homes.
Even though we have rather different styles, Catherine totally captured the feeling that I would love to incorporate into my home--laid back, simple, unpretentious, and creative. Now, you should go check it out.
