Inside Out: Jill’s One Project at a Time
Location: Financial District
Size: 620 sqft co-op
Favorite: the stage
We are going to step out of third person today on the Inside Out and move to first person. This is my apartment, exposed in all its glories and flaws. And although you may recognize it from the perspective of my striped wall, the wall of art, the stage, the bathroom, and my take on demolition, today’s post attempts to bring it all together.
In general, I am only interested in that which I think I won’t find anywhere else. If it exists, and I have spent a lot of time making it, I don’t want to know. I prefer the invention/innovation process or to collect it from random places around the world.
What I still need to work on is lighting. As much as I may be aware of the benefits of lighting, I underestimate the impact it has on my own space. I’ve started experimenting with the paltry lighting I have at my disposal and it proves to make a vast difference. Now, to make it permanent. My plan is to run some Edison bulbs and two single cords along the surface below the heating/cooling duct. Rather than recessed, I want the lighting to be exposed in its function and form–demystifying the wiring process completely.
