Gwyneth Paltrow's Assistant Gets a Goopy Apartment Makeover

New, 2 comments

One way to get the redecoration of your home featured in goop, aside from being Gwyneth Paltrow, is to be Gwyenth Paltrow's assistant. Become Gwyneth Paltrow's assistant, and your West Hollywood apartment could also be furnished with comped Restoration Hardware goods, with help from interior design service Home Polish, as Gwyneth Paltrow's assistant Kevin Keating's was in the latest issue.

Now, there is nothing wrong with being Gwyneth Paltrow's assistant (according to Vogue food critic Jeffrey Steingarten, Keating is "excellent" help) or having your home featured in goop, her brand-building lifestyle newsletter. It would just be nice if, when goop published your "small space makeover," goop would refer to you as more than just a "goop guy." (On Home Polish he's a "friend of goop.")

There is also, despite what being on the internet or listening to Martha Stewart might lead one to assume, nothing wrong with being Gwyneth Paltrow. But it might help the broader public to greater appreciate your goofy earnest tips if they didn't gloss over facts like this all the time, like when that "space above the garage" your people transformed turned out to be "the space above Gwyneth Paltrow's garage." You can just be real! You can have an impenetrably privileged lifestyle magazine that is also candid enough.

Anyway. To the apartment.

↑ "You wouldn't necessarily think of a bar cart as a living room necessity," says goop, but that is what separates you from the goopers of the world, who know that a bar cart is the living room necessity. This one, from Restoration Hardware ($1,495), has a little record player on it.

Here's a few more images, from Home Polish:

↑ "Be Kind, Be Kind; Be Kind" says the screen print hung in the living room. The Restoration Hardware couch is apparently "really masculine," which is totally something that a piece of furniture should be referred to as in this day and age.

Oh look, a Keith Haring wall decal in the dining area (←). Kevin opted for more Restoration Hardware dark leather with the desk (→), which is paired with a $350 chair called the "OMG."

This has been "A Small Space Makeover" for a "goop guy."
