Back Bay – Boston, Massachusetts
I have lived in this sunny one bedroom for about 16 months — it's my home and office (I am an architect) so it needs to function as a place that I can work in during the day and have friends visit over the weekend.
It had a lot of nice features to begin with — an eat-in kitchen with a window, hardwood floors, and two working fireplaces — but I have added some color while trying to keep the furniture and general atmosphere simple and uncluttered. I purchased almost all of the furniture from IKEA and my parents are in the oriental carpet business, so I took advantage of that connection and got a few nice carpets!
