Catherine's 1920s Studio
What I Love About My Home
My studio is in a small 1920s apartment building. I love the charming, old touches like the built-in corner cabinet in the dining area and clear door handles. It also has a decent amount of storage space for the era it was built in with a closet behind my bed that I use for cold storage and a "walk-in" closet that leads to the bathroom. I also love the fact that I can plug the vacuum in once and clean the whole space without switching outlets.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
I have quite a bit of Ikea furniture so it's hard not to get that Ikea showroom look. The layout is a little tricky. It wasn't until I came to terms with the fact that I would have to put my bed against the wall with the closet that everything else fell into place. I'm only planning on living here for one year so I've decided to hold off on a couple of things like wallpaper and adding floating shelves.
