The house tour that I did for Apartment Therapy today is one very close to my heart. I fell in love with Catrin's living room when I saw it in the Domino decorating contest a few years ago, and I've referred back to it about a million times since. It has the perfect balance of modern and traditional, and is swoon-worthy and comfortable both at once. Well, a few weeks ago Catrin wrote into AT seeking some advice for a furniture arrangement and I almost fell off my chair--my DREAM HOME was sitting in my inbox! I wrote Catrin to ask if she'd be up for opening her home to a house tour, and she said yes!
Being invited into a perfect stranger's home is always an exciting experience, and so far all my house tour hosts have been incredible and gracious---the kind of people that I'd love to be friends with. I love meeting new people and seeing how they've weaved their personalities and the personalities of their families into their home.
Catrin, was a total delight--welcoming, great sense of humor, and way too humble about being a very talented decorator. She's definitely someone "with an eye," and could easily turn that talent into a very successful business if she chose to go that route.
