He had annoying way of taking but the upspeak is not really as rampant as it is among many.

The decoration is a horror.

It's nice but I mentally checked out when he likened himself to Carrie Bradshaw.

Overall I think his decorating style is really bad. There's nothing about that apartment I find even remotely attractive.

Nice - I like it. But too many bottles - I would prefer a smoother, cleaner wall/cabinet. But I like minimalistic. He had some good insights about color and variations of white. Where do I find these Ball and Farrow “color people”?

by Anonymousreply 11November 22, 2022 1:15 AM

They weren't his insights R11. He repeatedly states that a color consultant selected the colors and explained how they best worked together.

Sorry but that R15 would cause me stress. I want my house to be calming, clean, and neutral - with maybe some good colorful art and some earthy wood and broth pillows. Too much color is too stimulating in our overstimulated modern lives. IMO.

Mediocre man highlights mediocre apartment.

Observations:

-He’s a drunk

-He doesn’t/can’t read.

-Despite that crazy long “table, I doubt he has enough friends to fill it. And if he did, who could eat with all the pretentious shit on the table. Also, the galley “common Room” gives off Oliver Twist vibes.

-The dining room is apparently is art-free, as guests have to slither about the walls to wheeze in there. And how the hell would you serve for in that over-sized closet? And the overhead light fixture is too large and visually shrinks the room…which it certainly doesn’t need.

-The kitchen…we’ll, it certainly is just that, girl. The large sink takes up too damned space. And the cabinet colors are a violation of THE Neutral Rule!

-The LR…really? Repurposing a sectional is fine if you’re in your 20s…shameful now as he’s clearly over 30.

-The bedroom…it’s a Full-sized bed right? Where do your tricks sleep? (I suspect one of the storage units holds a Murphy bed.)

-The bathroom appears to be functional, but the product-placement is shameful. Also, no group showers are happening in that joint.

-The “art” throughout is lazy/tacky/uninspired.

-Obviously, no red wine is served.

The upspeak is awful, but not as heinous as most we've dissected here, still....cut it out!

He says "like" too often, which is juvenile and waters down whatever one is trying to express. Yeah, that Skinny Girl dining table and hallway he's placed it in are just a bit too narrow to actually be functional, but the kitchen I like.

Other than a bottle of red wine on the counter I've always found displayed liquor bottles gauche. Put that shit away!

I'm fairly devoted to Farrow & Ball paints but that's about the only thing going on in the apartment. All those shades of off white make sense for the space and it's different rooms with different exposures, but it's simple, really, and our host tries to turn it into a science. Not crazy for the "hint of green" in the front room (bar.)

It looks like it was furnished in two hours by a crew from a furniture rental company. Except the crazy bar shelving (he seems to have one of everything where a more confident host would have made some choices, "Two kinds of gin in my house,: X or Y?".

What furniture there is is a bit ridiculous, not least in his "office" which consists of a small high square bar table and three wire-frame bar stools. No laptop, no lamp, no place for a lamp not to plug anything electrical into an outlet.

It's not a bad space, buy it would look better with even a bit of adult furniture.

I like the apartment. But seriously this is like an after hours speak easy.

I had to laugh when he kept talking about his "color consultant" - who came up with Skimmed Milk White and some other white. A friend's job once was to come up with names for hair dyes IIRC for Clairol. She made a really good salary in NYC. Seriously that was her job.

He did a really nice job - maybe he and his friends are colorful enough.

I think you may be on to something R73. A friend of mine worked for an interior designer in NYC who had all kinds of A list clients, decorated Richard Gere's apartment, etc. She always was late on payroll to pay the black seamstresses making the curtains yet she would go on binge shopping sprees buying $500 shoes or $1000 purses, which she could then write off as business expenses. The logic being she had to look the part to land all of those wealthy clients. It really PO'd me that she'd treat her employees so poorly. The IRS needs to tighten up on these kinds of deductions IMO.

Ok, rant over. Carry on with bitchy comments about the alkie gay boy.

by Anonymousreply 76November 22, 2022 6:06 PM

I like it. Someone with a drinking problem isn't likely to display hundreds of bottles of liquor. Wealthy people have private wine cellars but no one freaks out and implies they are alcoholics. Alcohol doesn't go bad so it's not unusual to amass a large collection of opened bottles. Especially for someone who likes to make up new cocktails and have parties. I rarely drink liquor but one of my lower kitchen cabinets is fully stocked with booze, most of it leftover from parties and people bringing a bottle of something. Some of you are so uptight.

I lived in a studio on E57th that was billed as having a "private sleeping alcove." It technically couldn't be classified as a bedroom because there was no door or closet but it was tucked out of view from the kitchen and living room. My closets lined the hallway leading to the bathroom. I always thought Mary Richards could have thrown up a wall or even a pony wall on the landing by the window and made a space for a proper bed.

No, he can't write off his entire living room as a tax deduction. He can write off a certain amount of square footage (of the living room), though. The write-off has to be for space that is used for work, only, not dual purpose space.

by Anonymousreply 84November 23, 2022 3:03 AM

Loved the ceilings. I like off-white paint on walls. All of his walls looked like the same color on video.

The liquor shelves overtook the space. I also wouldn't have liked it if it were all books. I think he could have stored all that liquor in the bedroom and used his "office" as a bedroom.

Other than the liquor, living room is a nice, large space.

The dining room was too narrow, plus, it makes ingress / egress to the kitchen difficult.

Kitchen: I liked, but that little table was stupid in that it was in the wrong place. Made the area seem like an obstacle course. (Squeezing through the dining area to get to the kitchen, then the kitchen has an obstacle as well.)

The office ... I doubt he works in there. Like I said, that space could be used as a bedroom.

The bedroom was fine, IMO. I'd be able to sleep in there.

Bathroom was nice. Neon sign that he had to crouch to switch on seemed silly.

The “office” could’ve been used as an intimate dining room while using the narrow, awkward “dinning room” as an extension of the kitchen for more informal dining.

Observations: - How did that long dining room table even get into the apartment? I'm assuming they reassembled. - The kitchen marble is beautiful. They cabinet color is horrible and don't look like they belong in that space. - The office looks uncomfortable seating with those stools without back support. How can you work there for hours? I see it as a gathering place rather than an office. The wallpaper or mural on the right is great though. - I never so so much alcohol in one place outside of a bar or liquor store.
