The boyfriend- an amazing NYC graphic designer- moved in with me earlier this year, and I have to say it was pretty seamless. That said, integrating a more rugged feel to my clearly feminine apartment was a bit harder. Mind you, the battle wasn't quite GI-Joe moving into the Barbie dream house, however I wanted to make my rustic, woodsy artist feel like this was his space too.
It's been a few months now, and slight improvement's have been made (just you wait), but when I saw this space I realize I'm obviously slacking. Gorgeous yet rustic. Clean yet vibrant. This space is essentially all my man would want in his home. I need to seriously step up my game.
