Almost three years ago, I got a phone call that everyone dreads from one of my best friends, Kirby. She told me that one of our close high school friends, Dimitri, had been killed in Afghanistan. I was working on a project in Oklahoma City at the time, and I went into an empty meeting room and cried – not for my loss, as I hadn’t seen him in almost two years, but for his family, close friends, and his beautiful new wife – Katie. I had never met her, but had heard wonderful things from one of my friends who had. Dimitri was always the life of the party – he was funny, charismatic, athletic, and smart. We were in the same group of friends, and somehow all the girls were convinced to go to the Del Castillo’s house on the weekends to watch the guys play video games (wild high school years, right?). I have so many good memories of those days!
Anyways, I was so excited to see Katie Del Castillo’s gorgeous Washington, DC apartment featured on The Everygirl. Her taste is impeccable. I seriously adore every single element of her apartment – the ikat couch (reupholstered!), the decorated bar tray, the collage wall, the pink winged chairs? Love it all. Read the article for links to all of these amazing accessories and furniture pieces. Also, read her blog – Life with a Dash of Whimsy – for more indulgence!
PS I’d totally pick lunch with Kate Middleton too. I want to meet her so badly.
