- What I Love About My Small Home:
- Almost everything in my apartment has passed through the hands of at least one other owner - very little lacks the patina of a lifetime of loving use. This includes the 72 year-old apartment itself, which sits above the family business, and has passed through the hands and varying design styles of grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts and now me.
Starting with nothing but a dusty blank space after college, I slowly sifted through second-hand stores, Craigslist, eBay, auctions and countless estate sales finding each piece of furniture and artwork on a fairly strict budget. Pieces were restored, used for a while and then sold or traded to get something better fitting. It's been a four year long non-stop curation process and it will likely continue for years to come until it's time for the next generation to move in.
