Make It Yours: Kate Durkin

by Lauren

Artist Kate Durkin and her husband, Lenny, live in this delightful Sunnyside, Queens apartment. I love how clean and simple this home is. And the color palettes are so inspiring! In the dining area, the small pops of green, red and black paired with a light wood create an unexpected and stunning combination.

Kate’s work desk radiates creativity. I adore the IKEA drawer organizer with her clever addition of paint and fabric — what a fun way to bring color and whimsy into a workspace. Be sure to visit the rest of the original Sneak Peek for more images of Kate and Lenny’s apartment. — Lauren
