Meet James, the fictional man that lives in this apartment. As we first meet him, he’s single, in his late twenties, and has just started his career as a research biologist. In his living room we have the mid-century rocker that will be the basis for each of the five looks in this edition of Making it Yours (MiY).
James loves orange, so when he bought his new couch he figured he may as well get one in his favorite color. He also picked up an orange pouf to rest his feet on and an orange pillow for the rocker. The couch has a faux wood grain pillow and a blue pillow that goes with the wall color and curtains. The cowhide rug, black floor lamp, and Ringside print are masculine and good-looking, much like our young bachelor (ba dum bum). And what could be more perfect on a biologist’s coffee table than a molecule building set? Awesome.
Next time we check in with James and his mid-century rocker, he won’t be a bachelor anymore… his girlfriend is moving in.
