Mister Sister! Episode 1: Apartment Tour

Last week, was the debut of our new series DIWhyNot and this week we premiere the new Mr. Kate intro and a new interior decorating mini series we're calling, Mister Sister! My little sister, Tess, just moved back to LA from Manhatten (yayyy! I missed her) and Joey and I are glad to help her get comfortable in her first solo apartment. In this episode we tour Tess's new place - an adorable 1 bedroom, 1930's apartment in West Hollywood - and create a mood board to help guide us in the design, and in Joey's case, a floor plan to help him know where to carry and place all the new furniture!

PS, what do you think of the new Mr. Kate theme song intro? We remixed it from the older version (seen here) with song writing wizard Ben Romans composing and Joey and I rapping / singing, respectively. Do you like it?

I can't wait to get started on these blank rooms and help give you all some interior decorating tips, especially those of you that live in rentals. We'd love to hear from you in the comments below and stay tuned for more episodes in this series!

The design plan for Tess' apartment is to make the white walls work but change out sconces and add design with mixed patterns. Her main colors are black and white with accents of blue and coral / raspberry. The key is to keep it elegant and infuse personality through pattern and accessories.

Annnnd, Joey's floorplan...
