Have you caught on to the fact that we happen to find Rory and his shared vibrant urban jungle LA paradise pretty darn fantastic? We’ve gotten him to share the secrets of sharing an apartment (with no separate bedroom) with another person. He’s graciously given us a more in-depth look at his closet. In this post he and his boyfriend Chris answer eight burning home decor questions you never realized you wanted us to ask, but you’ll be happy we did.

Your mom is 5 minutes away — what’s your super fast cleaning up trick?

Rory: My mother’s signature move is telling me she’ll be there at noon then at 5 of 9:00 calling to tell me she’s downstairs — so if you’re in a rush — Clorox wipes and stuffing clothes where they don’t belong is tried and true.

Chris:Throw everything in the closet — (obviously). Has never failed me.

Sexiest spot in your house?

Rory:The fridge.

Chris:The bathtub is huge and has a large shelf for candles.

What’s your favorite spot?

Rory: On the couch with the dog in my lap and all the blinds open.

Chris:The bed. I take any chance I get to be in bed.

How does your home make you happy?

Rory: It provides visual nourishment for my soul.

Chris:It’s always a pick-me-up to come home to a candy colored castle in the sky.
