Jim, a newly-single dad, needed to furnish a four-bedroom rental from scratch—and before the school year started. Given the short lead time and desire for a reasonable budget, this was a logical Ready-Made Decorating project. This bland box of an apartment became a warm home via a quick paint job, new door hardware, kid-friendly furnishings, and lots of family photos. Large rugs distract from the too-busy parquet flooring that couldn’t be changed. A custom TV cabinet with hydraulic lift floats in the middle of the room, making an awkwardly long space functional, and the large sectional is great for movie night with the kids as well as game day with the guys.
