House Tours: Living In A Colorful Collage | Apartment Therapy


(upbeat music) – I love my apartment. I love it. I love this space so much. When I was a kid I would
like a lot of things, a lot of shows and I wanted
to express that and I would put up posters everywhere. And then over time, I was
like, oh, I like this looks. I should add more posters. And then I should cover up the whole wall and then over time it was
just this is my wallpaper now. When I moved in, white walls everywhere. Freaked out, had to paint immediately. And then I was like, I’m
gonna live as an adult. I’m gonna paint the space and I was like, you know what? That’s too monochromatic. There are too many regular colors. So over time I was like, oh,
let me just put a little, a few magazines over on this wall. And then I was like, screw
it, this is how you are. You need to collage. Just accept it and move on. And just do it. (upbeat music) I have a People magazine
subscription so every week it comes and I flip through it and
read it and then immediately cut it out. Every week I spend time
cutting up magazines. I put it in a file and then
when I’m having a art project or a project that I wanna
do I pull out the folder and just have all the
clippings ready for me. So as you can see, I collage my floor. The tiles itself were too boring for me. So I decision to collage
it with celebrities and I made my own personal walk of fame. So these are my blinds. Which are throughout the apartment. I had to cut each
individual strip of magazine and paste them on to each individual blind which I spent six hours
on each pair of blinds. It’s still evolving. There’s a whole lot of things. I still will go to the
store and buy something and figure out where it is
and then everything encloses in on me and I kind of like it that way. (upbeat music)

Let me guess, without offending anyone: she was a homeschooled, only child?

I understand the need for things to be busy visually (I'm the same way, but not anywhere as intensely as Lori). It's much more interesting than most people's apartments. However, there is nowhere for the eyes to rest. Also… what happens if she moves?

When I was a teen my bedroom walls looked just like that. Love the idea for the blinds.

As long as she's happy that's all that matters, honestly. Good for her that she has a definite style and doesn't care about what others think. Honestly, she seems like a cool chick to be friends with.
