Now that I'm unpacked and mostly over my jet lag, my next project is to edit my apartment. I really want to live with less stuff. But that doesn't mean that I won't still appreciate maximalist design like this apartment owned by John Devitt, who works in advertising and set design for Ralph Lauren. His studio in the New York's Greenwich Village was featured on Lonny last week and I immediately bookmarked the masculine space. I actually didn't realize it was a studio until I read the article. It's obviously well laid out and the focus is not on the bed which can sometimes happen in studio apartments. While I am set to minimize, I was contemplating adding more photography to my bathroom so I am using his wall of art and photography as inspiration. There is a lot other great inspiration in the bookshelves and kitchen too. Minimizing certainly doesn't mean I'm going to become a minimalist either. I could never give up my books and art.
