When Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney needed some help decorating their new pad, they called on Kate and Joey of the YouTubes series OMG We're Coming Over! to put a sophisticated stamp on the place, ahead of their summer wedding. And it turns out that before the designing pair even walked into the casa, they were already facing some challenges from Katie's better half. In addition to being rather picky about color choices, "Tom thinks leaning a picture frame against a wall is artsy," Katie said of her hubby-to-be's interior design philosophy.
Still, with its high ceilings and large windows, the sunny apartment was the perfect blank canvas for the pair to make homey. The design duo worked their magic on the Vanderpump Rules' couple space by including a green wall (turns out its the couple's compromise color) and plenty of funky accessories. "It was only fitting that Joey and I gave them a living room and dining room that would be the perfect scenery for their exciting lives," design expert Kate wrote of the makeover. "They recently moved in to this loft style apartment and needed some good compromise design that captured Katie’s love for vintage glam and Tom’s desire for a clean, cohesive and hip space."
Among Kate's inspirations for their new home were the use of drama in the space (which makes sense considering all the drama that goes down on Vanderpump Rules) and Tom's "Bubba" butt tattoo, which he got last season in honor of Katie. The couple also wanted to make sure that their love of art was included in the pad. To see how all those ideas came together, check out the full apartment makeover, below.
