What I Love About My Home
The high ceilings and large windows create a bright, open environment and contribute to make the main room (242 sq. ft) look larger than it is. The dark hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances and countertops give the place a very sleek, modern feel, which my furniture and dÃ©cor complement, while also making the space feel warm and inviting. Iâm proud that Iâve been able to collect some classic pieces that function well for lounging, sleeping or working, and can also accommodate social gatherings without having to move a single piece of furniture.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Studio living requires that every single thing serves the space well, and this has forced to me to be very selective in what I purchase. Before buying anything, I ask myself, ââWhat function does this serve?â, âHow will this improve my space?â and âWill I want to own this 10 years from now?ââ One result of looking at everything I own all the time, is that I constantly want to add new elements â yet I realize adding a new item means I have to get rid of something else. My apartment was a featured house tour in January (http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/ny/pauls-perfectly-suited-studiohouse-tour-139847) and since the only additions Iâve made since are the two glass hurricanes in the window to the left of the desk. It took me three days to figure out where to put them and what they would replace!
