See Why Reddit Is Freaking Out Over This Apartment
When photographer Nicolette Johnson put images she took of her art-filled Australian apartment on Reddit's Interior Design forum, she could not have imagined her post would take off the way it did.
Within minutes, fellow users were inundating her with questions on everything from where she purchased specific pieces to where she hid all her junk in the clutter-free space.
The short answers: she scavenged much of her furniture and decor from affordable sources; the Danish armchairs are from eBay and their cushions were refurbished by her mom; the stunning dhurrie rug was a steal from Gumtree (Australia's version of Craigslist); and the Scandinavian bed frame is from Ikea. As for where she keeps all her junk, she said she purged most of her stuff before downsizing to the small apartment.
