Many of you have seen these images before. Kate and Andy Spade’s apartment in New York has become a bit iconic in the blog world. (If folks who are immersed in technology are “techies” are those of us well versed in decor “deccies?” You decide.)
In case you didn’t know, Mrs. Spade is a native. I know a few folks who call her Katie. I actually lived on the same floor as her sister our freshman year at KU. She and her roommate ditched the standard issue twin beds and brought in bunk beds to give them more room. It also provided easy access to the ceiling which they proceeded to turn into something of an inspiration board. Needless-to-say, I do not refer to the designer as “Katie” and her sister was far too cool to remember the likes of me.
Judith Fertig, a regular contributor to Spaces, wrote the engaging text that accompanies the stunning images.
Naturally, I would go on and on about Ted Muehling and his unbelievable candlesticks.
I missed the World of Interiors issue, so I am glad to have these images on paper, safely in my file in my desk. In it’s own yellow and white striped folder labeled “Katie” in black ink.
