Musicians Gary and Chelsey Knight's open and airy Astoria flat boasts two features that many big city apartments lack: natural light and space. Before moving here two years ago from Southern California, these two antiquing Angelenos edited down their impressive lot of vintage knickknacks and racks of gorgeous duds to start fresh and make the most of their new Queens quarters. The result is a colorful, tastefully mod home with the perfect amount of cherished mementos, playful humor, and, most importantly, cats—four, to be exact.
