New York City Apartment Decorating

The photo above is from a New York Times article about redecorating a bachelor pad apartment with new table lamps, area rugs and more. The project originated with a message on the Times website offering to help people with small decorating budgets.

The owner of the apartment reached out with the a message describing their situation: “Having just bought the apartment (with some down payment help from my dad), I don’t really have much money left over for furniture, design elements, etc.,” he wrote, but “basically, I want to live like an adult, not a student.” A common problem, we're sure!

The end result is a sophisticated yet affordable re-decorating plan. Check out the results: From Bachelor Pad to an Adult's Home, for $8000.
