Wow. You want to talk about a success story? How about Zach Motl, an actor turned interior designer. His 178 sq. ft. (!) apartment was featured in the New York Times… after landing a gig with prestigious design firm, Robert Couturier & Associates, without the requisite experience (three years design experience and AutoCAD) for the job. How? He showed them what he’d done to his apartment. That’s can do!
The living/dining/bedroom area.
Artful display abounds!
The office area features a desk he got when he was twelve and a $10 antique leather chair.
