Maximalism in New Yorker studio apartment via Nelli Arnths Blog

I love stepping into a home that exudes soul and history. A home you can spend hours exploring. Reading book titles on the shelf, study old photographs and reflecting on how the small tin horse ended up there – and even more important – why it is missing a leg? It fills you with wonder and curiosity, and gives you the feeling that everything in the house has a story to it.

In New York’s East Village you can find exactly that kind of home. Ann Stephenson and Lori Scacco are letting maximalism leading the way. I really like it. More is more.

It was when they stopped following the beacon of efficiency that the 370-square-foot apartment found its soul. “We returned to a clean slate and brought in pieces from our upstate farmhouse—my grandparents’ dining table, threadbare rugs, various artworks acquired over the years,” says Stephenson. “The full-scale pieces worked beautifully in the space and actually grounded everything, allowing us to live among items we have a strong connection to and that have a sense of history.”

I can safely say that most everything in our home has a story to it. I think you can feel that in a space. – Ann Stephenson
