Over the past few months, I’ve become obsessed with redecorating my apartment. It feels like a natural progression from my obsession with clothing, and I’ve noticed that as I get older, I’m focused on surrounding myself with beautiful things inside my home, as opposed to spending all my time outside of the house.

And what have they done to deserve that?Click to Continue!
