Tattoo artist Balazs Bercsenyi's advice on decorating an apartment:

1) Be patient, don’t buy everything upon first sight because you’ll end up selling half the stuff—it happened to me; 2) Get lots of plants because they’re good for the soul; and 3) Don’t put too much stuff in your living space. It’s important to let the apartment breathe.

When you spend as much time on google seeking out decor and plant inspiration as I do for your virtual 'living space' board, you're bound to stumble across some gems in the form of apartment tours, like this tattoo artist's stunning home in Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood. I'm even more thrilled to have stumbled upon his tour because it's led me to the lovely site that is 6SQFT, a blog all about the people, places, and things that make New York such a magical place. It's refreshing to discover new places around the web that feature the living spaces of so many interesting people. They have a series on their blog titled My Sq Ft, which I'll probably spend a great amount of time lusting over for the next several days. There are very few things that excite me more than this.

Admiring the photos of his space, from the stunning views of the city, to the floor-to-ceiling windows, to his inspiring workspace/office, to my favorite plant of all time, the White Bird of Paradise (I would really have one in every room if I could), you can instantly tell that so much thought was put into personalizing his space. Every detail posesses its own personality, its own vibe. I've naturally gravitated towards the whole bohemian ambiance. I just find it to be a much more interesting, less conventional way of showcasing your personal style. That's not to say that other styles of decorating are boring, because I love a bit of everything (remember how I talked about my style of decor being transitional and everchanging? It really is), but a living space with even a hint of a bohemian modern vibe, and I'm all over it.
