Setting the Scene

The photo stylist who occupies this L-shaped 500-square-foot New York City studio apartment calls on the same techniques he uses to make interesting sets for photo shoots to create a modern and eclectic scene for high-style living and entertaining. Plexiglas panels suspended from the ceiling separate his dining area and his bedroom, and a custom-built storage bench doubles as a twin bed in his dressing/guest room.

Because there isn't enough room for a freestanding bookcase, he employs vertical, free-floating stacks of books that look like pop-art sculptures. And he hangs multiple chalkboards on a large wall for inexpensive, changeable art.
