Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: My home is a small apartment rental that I decorated with influences of mid-century modern. It is a little bit boho and somewhat eclectic. My place has a blend of old (thrifted) and new. I am more of a maximalist but not too much. A lot more effort has been put into my living room, home office, bedroom, and bathroom than any other room in the apartment. I have a roommate.
I identify as a guy who is somewhat of an old soul, thus, I see beauty in some vintage things. I think that some aspects of my identity are reflected in the art, color palettes, accessories, etc. For instance… Some of the art that I have may lead you to believe that I appreciate the beauty of men. I’m gay. So, that’s to be expected. But I also collect pictures/art depicting females. My color palette leans more toward brighter colors and earth tones.
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Modern, vintage, eclectic, boho, classic
What is your favorite room and why? The living room, because I think that it is the most attractive.
What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? The last thing I bought was an art print of a vintage artwork. It is on the wall above my couch. I bought it from Lone Fox online.
Any advice for creating a home you love? Be true to yourself and display or use what you like. I also believe in some cohesiveness. Having a maximalist aesthetic is interesting and can look very nice, but I believe that there could also be too much. Let it be thought out and edit. I believe in some coordination.
