Killy also recommends following these steps when painting stripes: "... paint your walls with the base color, tape the stripes, then paint another coat of the base color, brushing over the tape to seal the edges. Let that dry completely before painting the accent color. This step certainly adds time, but it completely eradicates paint bleeds under the tape, resulting in clean, crisp lines."
The couple's main source of inspiration for the apartment was the great light that came in from four south-facing windows. According to Killy, "[the windows] helped blur the fact that we lived in a small New York apartment on a busy street by making us feel like we were a little more connected with the outdoors. We built on that by having plants hanging everywhere."
"The kitchen was literally a strip of wall in the living room, with a 2' x 1.5' section of countertop, one drawer and a few cabinets," Killy shares. "Utilizing the walls for vertical storage was essential; every nook and cranny was considered a potential storage opportunity."
Pretty pots and pans gifted to the couple on their wedding are on view in the petite kitchen.
