BIG STYLE, SMALLER SPACE In the capable hands of Cate Lownes and Mia Miller, downsizing to The Barclay on Rittenhouse Square didn’t feel like a compromise—just a chance to reinvent. INTERIOR DESIGN by EM INTERIORS

Downsizing from a sprawling Main Line home to a city condo is an adjustment, even if that condo happens to be 5,000 square feet and located at The Barclay on Rittenhouse Square. Originally built in 1929 as The Barclay Hotel, this stately prewar-style building was once home to many of Philadelphia’s most glamorous parties and celebrity guests. Although the building was converted into condos in the 1990s, the building maintains much of its original character. Cate Lownes and Mia Miller, of EM Interiors, believe the interior design of any space should respect the architecture
