Catherine Kwong has had a big year. In just 12 months, the interior designer opened her eponymous firm; completed the stylish “Fashion Blogger Studio,” one of the most talked-about rooms in the 2012 San Francisco Decorator Showcase; and married emergency room doctor Brian Kwong. But one (literally) small thing also happened: She renovated a 1,300-square-foot loft in SF’s Jackson Square for herself and her new husband.

When Catherine remodeled her home, she paneled the dining room wall with vintage wine racks, so there would always be a bottle at hand. “Guests can help themselves,” she says. She also personalized a Blu Dot oak-topped dining table by adding gold leaf to the steel legs. “I loved the simplicity of the original table, but it was too off-the-rack for me,” she says.
