Apartment Therapy is a blog dedicated to helping people make "their homes more beautiful, organized and healthy by connecting them to a wealth of resources, ideas and community online." The site promotes resources, connections and examples to help readers transform their living spaces into more peaceful spaces, and all without breaking the bank.
Written by a staff of writers from all over the country, Apartment Therapy covers trends in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston and DC. The site offers reviews and links for great products, tips on how to make your living space more livable, and even instructions on how to build your own furniture. But it's not all DIY. Apartment Therapy also provides house tours of tons of apartments from all over, providing inspiration and ideas for all their readers. One of my favorite recent posts was a tour of modern bathrooms from around the world. I'll probably never have a bathroom like any of those in the slideshow, but it's still fun to look.
Apartment Therapy believes that 'simplicity and luxury are not mutually exclusive.' Co-founder and CEO, Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan practices what he preaches, er, I mean blogs. The man lives in a 265 foot apartment with his wife and kids. (Can you imagine how well-organized this guy's closet must be?) You can see a slideshow of the apartment, including some of the closet, here.
Personally, my apartment probably needs a little more than therapy, but surely this site is a good start.
