I'm sorry, but there is nothing fun about trying to live on minimum wage no matter where you live. I have a few friends who barely make more than minimum wage who are hard working Americans but have a hard time affording the basics most people take for granted. It's an issue we as a nation need to discuss and do something about. Believe it or not there are people working full time jobs who are homeless forced to live in their cars or couch surfing at a different friends place every night. Meanwhile the average rent in SF is close to $2500 a month.

I can't imagine what this piece will be used for? Seems kind of useless to me.

Your home is so wonderfully whacked! It is so well curated one would never guess your furniture and objects weren't intentionally hunted down to buy and use together. The kitchen is amazing and even though it is slick and high end looking in comparison to the bohemian feel of the other rooms it works really really well together. I got a kick out of the Day of the Dead headboard since you are on the other side of the pond and most people even in the US who live outside of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas have little to no knowledge and or appreciation for the art the holiday inspires. Kudos to you and your skills at putting it all together. I'm surprised that no haters commented on the taxidermy objects and tried to make you feel weird for honoring the animals that once lived and were adorned by the antlers. I think AT could have used and shown twice as many photo's of the dwelling. This will be one of those I have to come back to look at over and over again. Thanks for making my day!

If you live in San Francisco and have a set of keys you are legally considered a tenant.

Simply amazing! Wish there were more photo's of the roof top deck and glassed in room.

I think this layout is lacking in several ways. First off, it isn't very masculine at all. The chaise is very feminine. This Eames lounge chair and ottoman would have been more masculine: If this is a bachelor pad I think the color palette is extremely off. It would have been much more appropriate to have painted the walls a dark grey or dark blue creating some drama as a backdrop to the neutral color furniture. The purple or lavender dining stools, again too feminine as presented against the khaki wall color. This would be a complement to the wood of his coffee and end table: with these chairs: Same in the bedroom, natural wood picture frames over the velvet tufted headboard are ugly and don't show off the photos. The headboard would have been more appropriate and masculine in leather especially with the dark espresso color wood nightstands: It's a shame that such an amazing apartment should look so generic. The floor lamp in the living room is about the only masculine thing in the apartment.

Textiles, in California applying your security deposit to your last months rent is illegal. Be sure to check the legalities in your state and never assume anything.

Oh, and I love this apartment and the design sense Heather has. Finish that mural this coming winter when it's too cold to go thrift shopping!

As far as being critical of readers who rant about Ikea look at the Free stuff listings on Craigslist and observe all the photos of broken Ikea furniture left on curbside. Furniture that will end up in landfills within a couple of years is not good for the planet and certainly won't be collected by antique admires a hundred years from now so lighten up on coming down on someone who speaks the truth. The last thing the planet needs are more disposable products that will end up in a landfill or a lake or at the bottom of the ocean.

I'd build a small sleeping loft which would separate the sleeping and living areas better plus add additional floor space. Why let those tall ceilings go to waste? Wish the AT photographer had taken less close ups and more long shots to get a better feel of what the space really looks like.

Great architecture and love all the concrete but don't feel you guys did the space justice with your decorating. It looks more a high end hotel suite than an apartment. The only things that give it any personality are the few snapshots framed on the one headboard. Everything matches too well and it looks to me like it was furnished on one or two afternoons of making the rounds of high end boutique showrooms. I know for a fact you could do way better with having selected original and interesting artwork. Sorry guys but the apartment deserves better. However, each to their own. Congrats on finding such a fabulous apartment though..... Now, just make it more unique and a reflection of your lives is all.

The alone panting is definitely hung too high. Never rush decorating a room, it shouldn't be filled with objects just to fill in those negative spaces. Wait until you see the things that speak to you to purchase. Before you know it, your room will be filled with things that reflect your personality and sense of style and you'll be much happier with the end result than if you run out and go on a shopping spree in order to make it look complete. Good luck.

Oh, I also love the golden yellow drapes and the way it brings out the green hue in the grey wall color.

The only thing I would want to add are a few unique taxidermy pieces. Very well done!

These guys must work in Visual Merchandising...... The earring chandelier is pure genius. LOVE the 1970's fiberglass dining table and chairs. The huge "sex" mirror next to the bed is amazing as well as the groupings of different hanging swag lamp shades. Congrats on the end result of your efforts. Very well done!

Sorry, but I don't see this space as being particularly interesting or unique. I definitely appreciate old warehouse conversions but this one is too conservative and seems to be trying too hard to emulate a suburban ranch home in Austin, Texas rather than celebrating it being an old shoe factory in an industrial urban neighborhood. Everything is so "safe" and catalog looking. The two things I do appreciate are the shelving cubes mounted on the wall and the kitchen with the stainless steel backsplash.
