Design Insider: Details in Apartment Shopping
from Right MoveCrown Molding I adore crown molding! It's such a fabulous feature to have in a home, and it can be used with many styles. You can pair crown molding with modern, sleek furniture or more traditional furniture, depending on your personality. I love to paint it white so you can really see all the detail.
from PinterestFire Escapes It may seem odd, but fire escapes are a real treasure! You're not really allowed to have a lot out on your fire escape because it needs to be a clear exit path. However, depending on your space, you may be able to fit a gorgeous planter outside. This will give you an uplifting view when looking out of your window. Plus, fire escapes are great for mini-dates!
from InhabitatThe Nooks Awkward nooks in NYC apartments can be the key to a fabulous apartment! With a little creativity, you can make the most out of your nooks. You can create a small office area, reading corner, or even an extra area for storage. This is an easy way to add your own personality to your space.
from PinterestPanelling and Wainscoting If you haven't worked with panelling and wainscoting before, it can seem a little scary. But it's a fabulous detail to have in your space. You can paint your panelling an alternate color, or hang art between the panels. If you think outside the box, your home can be FAB!
from PinterestThere are so many details in old New York apartments that we often overlook. These details can make your space even more gorgeous than expected. Do you have any of these details in your home? I'd love to take a look, please send your pics over!
