Name: Andrijana & Stanimir
Location: New York City, NY
Size: 750 sq ft
Years lived in: Several years; Rented

Andrijana & Stanimir do not like to be defined by any particular style or theme, giving them the freedom to incorporate & interchange an assortment of pieces in their apartment. This has become an integral part of their interior process as Andrijana is constantly changing and rearranging the space based on a new find. They’ve been living in their upper Manhattan rental for several years and have created a home that is open, inviting and full of artistic and cultural details, much like the couple themselves.
