Hide CaptionShow CaptionEverything in this clean and modern apartment was designed with beauty and function in mind.
Charnock finds his home so beautiful because it is all so functional. The sectional sofas offer flexibility in the space and pull out into two single beds that can be pushed together to make one larger bed. The flat screen TV is suspended from the ceiling in the middle of the space and swivels 360-degrees to be viewed from anywhere in the apartment. An entire wall of closets provides more storage than is even needed. The bedroom can be sectioned off with a double curtain. One layer is a sheer curtain, which creates a nice soft see-through effect; the second layer is a special light and sound-blocking solid curtain that closes up the space from view completely, creating a cozy nest within the drapery.

Living in a clean, modern space doesn't mean having to buy everything new. Charnock loves to find unusual pieces at flea markets to add character to the utility. He even chose a character walnut floor for the apartment. It already has all the knots and mistakes many people don't want and the tung oil finish makes the wood incredibly hard and durable. Charnock likes living in a space where everything can be used and enjoyed.
