Hey, gidday mates. No exaggeration, I’ve been spending at least two hours a day (and often four-six hours on an average weekend day) looking up furniture and interior design blogs and articles and inspiration photos over the last few months. I’m on a never-ending quest to improve my apartment, and it’s a slow, laborious, expensive and frustrating process. The above photo is my living room as it looks at time of writing. The photos that follow are NOT of my apartment. Sadly.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! How are we, how are we? Like I keep saying, I’m in the midst of a love affair with camp collar short sleeve shirts, redecorating my apartment, and my new dog Fifi (not necessarily in that order). To celebrate, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite things, which is a feature I typically reserve for Instagram. So with that in mind, read on.Click to Continue!
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. Who’d’ve thought. And that’s where Tariq Dixon and Nick Nemechek come in. The dynamic duo founded homewares/interiors e-commerce/editorial site TRNK after noticing a distinct gap in the market for guys like me who are keen to dip their toes in the ocean that is creating a home. Where are we supposed to shop? Who’s catering to us? Where do we start? Since first logging on a year or so ago, I’d be lying if I said I don’t visit TRNK at least five times a week. Often more. I’m also a regular customer, having bought everything from hanging planters to art to coffee mugs. Needless to say, I’m a fan. So I sat down with Tariq and Nick to find out more about their business, and get some tips in the process. Win/win.Click to Continue!
Anon asks: Hi Isaac, I recently moved to the other side of the world with my boyfriend of two years and we’re having redecorating issues. We were supposed to be designing our new pad together but instead he has taken it upon himself to control everything. We have completely different styles, but I was lead to believe that we were going to compromise. Now I’m stuck in a sticky situation: Stand my ground and fight, or let it slide and sacrifice it not feeling like my home?
Hey, gidday mate. I can relate because I am by nature a world class control freak, and in my experience, there’s only one way to deal with control freaks.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Exciting news — I’ve officially signed a lease on my first apartment in New York City. It’s actually the same apartment I’ve been living in for almost three years, but my lovely flight attendant roommate Daniel decided to move out closer to the airport, so now it’s all me.Click to Continue!
