I have a project I recently completed that might be of interest to fellow Apartment Therapy readers: I decorated an entire apartment using only retail stores and their catalogs (Room and Board, Crate and Barrel, Wisteria, Z Gallerie, DWR, etc) with the intent of creating a fresh, eclectic look that would be an inspiration to the do-it-yourselfer. It's about using catalog products but mixing them in a way that won't make an apartment look like it's from one store, generic, or mail-ordered.
Tell us what you think about Matthew's Los Angeles interior, as we think he's done a fine job of mixing and matching from multiple shops and online sources without giving a recognizable specific brand style. Perhaps we should hold a contest of whom can name as many of the products and retailers showcased in all the rooms. Amusingly enough, one of the chairs used is the same as we listed for today's Scavenger post.
