First Apartment Hunting & Decorating Ideas For Him

Autumn is almost here. While most of you are preparing to send your children back to school or college, I am finding it hard to believe I have two grown young man at home who have graduated college and are ready to move out on their own.  Feels like just yesterday I was dropping them off at preschool.   Let me tell you, apartment hunting is not easy in NYC. Of course, there is the rental application, but what I wasn’t prepare for was the co-signing and paperwork involved. Unless, you have a rich uncle or deep pockets, forget renting alone.

Most young men and women have two or three roommates. What may be a two bedroom apartment is partition into a three bedroom.  If  they are lucky to have a comfortable living room, I hope to help them take it from dorm room furniture to semi-sophisticated living space for all to share.


I am gathering a few ideas for the boys to think about when it comes to furniture selection.  The eclectic mixture of  rich textures and vintage influence from Ralph Lauren Home Hoxton Collection is masculine, stylish and lofty.


 Let’s face it, boys like their leather.  You know I love pretty interiors, but I have an equal major crush for masculine decorating.

Thanks for stopping by.
