What was the decorating process like? Did you encounter any challenges in making your apartment feel like a home?
My previous apartment was the first place I had ever put much thought into, and I was the one who brought most of the furniture into our new home. Yet what looked great in my 1920s-style apartment looked sad and stark in our new space. Joe and I found that home meant living in a place that has some character and soul to it, so we invested in more traditional pieces like vintage Turkish rugs and raw wood shelving to warm up the modern space. I feel we’re building a good foundation for a home when the time comes.
