I'm an avid Apartment Therapy lurker, and this particular house tour caught my eyes. It's a studio apartment on West Hollywood that caused quite a stir in the comment section. You know how AT commenters are brutally honest about things. :)
CLUTTERED or LIVED-IN?
That is the million dollar question. The readers are torn between those two. I honestly don't know the answer but I find this apartment quite lovely.
Yes it has a lot of things lying around, but I find it unpretentious.
Let's be honest, we all have STUFF. And in ordinary days where we won't have a "shoot for a post" or we're not expecting any guest, this is what real houses look like, probably even worst.
But given the fact that you're planning to put yourself "out there" for everyone to see, how do we stage our place? Do we clean the heck out of it, and lose every inch of reality, or do we show people how we live?
I really don't have the answer, hence this post. I wanna hear what you all think.
What's the difference between cluttered and "lived-in"?
Of course, don't judge base on these pictures, these are my favorites so it will be unfair! haha..
Check out the whole tour, and let me know you're say.
Regardless, I would LOVE to have my hands on that gorgeous bed!
