The article was about a small jewel-box of an apartment in which the owner furnished everything (EVERYTHING) in the studio for under $100. From street finds to sample sales, he outfitted his gorgeous SF space to look just scrumptious. Now just to let you know, this article was published in January of 2001. That’s right 2001!
Fast forward to Alkemie’s Blog post…now tell me you don’t see some similarities. Well, I did. I thought to myself, now this has to be the updated (8 year later) version of my favorite little SF apartment. But no! This apartment is in New York, and in fact was a Semifinalist in Apartment Therapy’s Smallest Coolest Apartment Contest.
I did a little research and guess what I found? It’s the same Owner/Designer: Ron Marvin. Ron Marvin’s two apartments have been featured in Metropolitan Home three different times as well as being on a couple of HGTV shows: Decorating Cents and Small Space, Big Style. I just love this guy’s style. It’s timeless yet updated. I love his use of white and neutrals, it’s calm yet playful at the same time. I wish he still lived in San Francisco so he could come make a little house call 😉

How cool. My bathroom looks a little like his. White tiles and black paint. Now I just need some horns as art for the walls and I’ll be set.
Aren’t those horns great? I just love ’em. I saw some cute stick antlers at the http://www.curiosityshoppeonline.com/ but it looks like they don’t carry them any more 🙁

I really love that little office he’s carved out in that little corner. Everything in it is just perfect.
