Creative couple and treat their Washington, DC home as part apartment and part studio. Bryan is a graphic designer at , a freelance illustrator and a fan of the Beach Boys, while Katie is the display coordinator at the newly opened Anthropologie in downtown DC, a freelance illustrator and an aspiring lounge singer. They often collaborate on writing songs and recording 60s covers. Although their personal styles can differ, they’ve found a way to incorporate both points of view into their small apartment: anything graphic or brightly colored is Bryan’s, and anything understated or cat-related is Katie’s. And while Katie attempts to de-clutter, Bryan keeps bringing home old books and records, but you have to admit that it’s a fun mix. Thanks, Bryan and Katie, and thanks to for the photos! —
