Maplethorpe's Airy Feel
What I Love About My Home
High ceilings and openness. The condo has a bright and airy feel despite windows on only one wall. We've packed a lot of furniture and random goods in to a small space yet it doesn't feel cramped or overwhelming. The apartment is essentially one large rectangle with a sliding wall that closes off the kitchen or the bedroom, so the space requires a seamless flow from room to room which I think we've achieved. The fact that all of our goods/baubles, 2 adults, and a bossy french bulldog all coexist in this space peacefully without murdering each other is probably what we love most. And the color-coded bookshelf. And the bathroom wall wallpaper-ed in fiction. And our dance moves within the apartment. And the smell of cupcakes wafting from the shop in the bottom of the building. Those are all nice too.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Finding appropriate homes for all of the not alive animal decor. The paper-mache rhino head in the bathroom. The gilded piglet cookbook bookend. Rubber rhinocerus(es) and elephants. The bird decals flying skyward on the dining room wall. Cross-stitch jellyfish in jars. All animals need homes, and we are basically the humane society for craft animals.
