Real Cool People, Real Cool Apartments: Kat Typaldos

Check out the two-bedroom home of the NYC-based stylist


As with clothes, the way you decorate a room expresses your personality. In its most ideal form, it signals to guests how you interpret yourself. In this round of Real Cool People, Real Cool Apartments, we check out the two-bedroom Greenpoint, Brooklyn home of stylist Kat Typaldos. Our intentions behind the creeping: to — what else? — learn what she’s all about.


Kat Typaldos


Greenpoint, Brooklyn

How long have you lived in this apartment?

For five years.

Who do you live with?

My roommate and plants.

What do you like about your hood?

I love that I live across from a beautiful park with speckled light next door to a church which functions as a recording studio, venue for shows, dance parties and farmers’ markets. I love the community here. I have made neighborhood friends!

What about this apartment?

It feels like a true home with good vibes.

What’s the worst thing about the apartment?

Thin walls.

What’s the best?

The light.

What did you think about when decorating?

I used to live with my sister and we inherited a lot of pieces from our parents (rugs and a couch) when they were moving. It was a touch-and-go process, and now it’s time for a revamp.

What are your favorite apartment “scores” and where are they from?

My “POO” painting made by my near-and-dear friend Andy Meerow. It was part of his senior thesis from college and I was able to keep it post-break up with my long-term boyfriend.

What does your dream room look like?

Amazing light, all-white, very Mediterranean in spirit.

What’s the one thing every apartment should have?

Plants, plants, plants and light!

  • “It feels like a true home with good vibes” – yes, and that’s why I love this. Kat’s apartment doesn’t look curated (which is my new c-word). Rather it looks like she’s had some great times, lovely memories and she’s picked up some rad souvenirs along the way. More apartment tours!

      I’m really starting to get annoyed with the whole curated theme (excellent word!). Like, you’re a mom with two toddlers and your white couches and faux fur rugs and your perfect record player and NO STAINS ANYWHERE?! Yeah. RIGHT. I’d rather see real life, not a staged photo of your Ina Garten kitchen. I currently have a harissa stained kitchen towel hanging out on my counter after a spice refill gone wrong last night. Is my towel from West Elm? Yes. Is it perfectly folded and pressed and ironed and steam to hang over my perfect stove? NO. (whew. Sorry. Clearly been holding that in for a while hahaha)

  • Love everything about this space! Some srs house envy happening over here.

  • Rebecca

    Oh my goodness – LOVE this apartment. eclectic and eccentric! Also envy that she has the apartment space fully to herself – no roomate, no boyfriend. The dream sometimes..

    • chunny

      I believe it mentions she does have a roommate, though their bedroom is not pictured 🙂

  • Lenam Mahj

    I would love to know the make and model of her blouse, so I can buy one and get it embroidered too!

  • Bailey Stark

    I feel like I need to live here.

  • I got the light, now I need the plants!
