#38 – Dixie’s Vintage Carnival
Location: Bluebird Manor, Manhattan
Size: Approximately 580 s/f Studio
My décor could be called “stuff other people no longer want.” My favorite all-time resource are flea markets and the curb. Almost everything in my home comes from the 26th Street flea market, dumpsters or the sidewalk (save for my TV, parrots, and the trundle bed which is a show room sample I wheedled down to next to nothing).
What inspired you?
…While my decor speaks to my romanticism, my studio is also immensely pragmatic. I eat, sleep and work comfortably in the main room I share with 5 parrots and a dog. A room that might have housed my bed is instead a walk-in closet, enabling me to keep the main room open and clutter-free.
Listen to what speaks to you, other who speak. Only you know you always wanted to be a pirate, only you know you need lost of space to practice your rhumba.
