I was delighted to discover my sweet friend Mary Kate's apartment in the most recent home design issue of Time Out New York. I love Mary Kate's style and I am in awe of how much of it she managed to pack into such a small space. (When I lived in a studio of similarly diminutive proportions, I wimped out with a white-on-white-on-white scheme.)
Perhaps she was able to be so bold because she had a little help with the design from designer Nick Olsen. I've often wondered what it would be like to work with a decorator, and the results of Nick and Mary Kate's collaboration seems to be the perfect testament to working with a pro. Don't you agree?
