The great things about these projects (Actually two different apartments with the same floor plan) is the way he was able to highlight the architectural features like the fireplace, the curves walls and the tall windows. He even finds a way to do this without sacrificing comfort or function. Many apartments have alcoves, bay windows and other architectural features that are difficult to design around. Curved walls almost always look great, however you cannot simply put a normal 80″ couch against a curved wall. You will only wind up losing a lot of floor space Dietz does a great job of using a single arm chair to keep a great architectural feature visible without losing a lot of square footage. 

“Good art can transcend the decor. I find that the art you
love will complement the furniture you love as well.”

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
