Excerpt as written by Sydney Yaeko for Chairish.com:
We’re back with a new guest tastemaker for some quick-fire questions and a mini-curation of some fab Chairish finds!
This week, we sat down with makeup artist Kim White, who has become synonymous with small space glamor after her gorgeous 296 sq ft Brooklyn studio was featured in Apartment Therapy last year. Kim moved into the space following a breakup, and was determined to add her personal touches to it to make it all her own. Kim’s love of design stems from a passion for enhancing inherent beauty — a skill she exercises regularly in her day job. This past December, she moved to a ground-level unit two floors down and started sharing her renovation and decorating tips and tricks with her Instagram and TikTok followers. Soon the new apartment will be decked out floor to ceiling in her signature Kim White Style.
What are you most excited for regarding your new living space?
I’m extremely excited to have outdoor space in Brooklyn. I’m from Ohio and I’ve missed hanging out in the backyard. While I know very little about landscaping, I’m looking forward to the challenge of transforming the unused yard into an outdoor haven. Since I just moved recently, the entire apartment is an upcoming project!
The idea of voluntarily uprooting in the midst of a pandemic (while we’re all clamoring for stability, peace, and safe spaces) made me question if I was mentally ready to deal with the disarray of moving. Even though I didn’t move far, there’s still a process to putting your home life back together in a new space. This time I’m documenting it as I go.
You have become known for how masterfully you curated and designed a new apartment to suit your personal needs, following a breakup. What would you say was the best change you made to that previous space?
The most impactful changes that I’d made to my studio apartment had to be the addition of all of the vertical storage. The floor to ceiling gold cabinets in the kitchen and the large closet units in the bathroom made that 296 square foot space a lot more functional. After that, I’d say that the laundry room and the “cloffice” were icing on the cake, and flanking the walls with mirrors made that little studio feel a lot bigger.
Thank you Chairish for the feature!!!!!!!
