    Over freshly brewed Blue Bottle coffee and organic handmade chocolate macaroons (still warm from the oven) on her weathered dining-room table, it's hard to imagine that Kerrilynn Pamer and her photographer husband, John, have only lived in their Prospect Heights apartment for six years. As the owner of West Village boutique Castor & Pollux, the go-to shop for elegant, eclectic nomads, Pamer's interior design sense is as global as the wares she stocks, albeit with a maximalist bent that rarely gets checked. The result is a home that looks like it's been lived-in forever. There's a Miss Havisham feel sans the depressing decay—Dickens' killjoy could hardly appreciate the sun that streams in from the gigantic picture windows, framing a fish-tank view of Prospect Park. Indeed, the weathered floorboards and sagging bookcases bulge with life, from basil putting down roots in the kitchen (beside fermenting Kombucha) to her can-we-keep-them dogs Otto and Beba. If everything looks like it has a story, it's because it does, which Pamer narrates as we shoot every crammed corner. While you can't bite her memories, our slideshow may inspire you to copy her décor genius—and have a macaroon.
