Tell us what your own homes are like – how would you describe the décor?
Amanda: It’s funny because the longer Whitney and I know each other, the more similar we become! Whitney recently told me that when her friends came over and asked how her home differed from mine, she explained that I like clean lines, warm wood tones, texture, and not a lot of clutter. Her friends looked around and were genuinely confused as to how that in any way differed from her own home!
Whitney: I’m currently quarantined in our family’s small cabin in the Catskills, so it feels more like home these days than our Brooklyn apartment. This house was built in the 1940’s as a hunting cabin and has a distinct “summer camp” vibe – we designed it in a way that is comfortable, durable and cozy. It’s also full of timeworn antiques and vintage pieces passed down from my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Things that felt a little heavy or old-fashioned in the city work beautifully here.
