Here's our favourite quote from Maxwell's interview with The Washington Post that we think embodies the heart of AT's philosophy:
"...Too many people treat rentals as temporary and say they are waiting for the day they make their home. Start today. But if your landlord doesn't allow you to make many big changes, there's still a lot you can do. . . . Start investing in good furniture that you love and will keep for a long time. These are building blocks. If you can, paint. It's the cheapest way to impact your home. The colors and style you choose are important parts of self-expression and establishing your own home. Keep everything clean, including the windows. Any home or apartment can be totally transformed by a deep cleaning."
We now have a strong desire to scrub the floors, vacuum the rug, and wash our dirty windows. Don't you?
