i so often find it interesting to see apts on apartment therapy where i feel that there is no indication of the detritus of life.
i find it hard to believe when i see
no books (i couldnt live without my books)
no electronics of any kind? maybe everything is on a laptop and iphone?
no tv? interesting .
no closet ? storage? (it may be there but where? )
no kitchen appliances? (maybe there is not much cooking)
i would love to see an apartment with evidence of more life in it. i bet many of us who live in apartments dont have minimal furnishings or possessions.
my current apt is my home (for 10 years) and it has - books, knitting, cats, clothes, winter coats, running shoes, computer (or two), TV, a stereo and components, records, tapes (yes), etc... as well as kitchen appliances and a piano and music. and under 800 sq ft
if i had few belongings and very little furniture my place would be empty too.
i also dont have builtin kitchen cabinets or lots of closets or an updated bathroom. however i love my place with my stuff and i have created great storage (hidden and open) to handle my things. (which i declutter frequently)
to each his own. which is after all what these tours show.
