Naomi Stein describes her aesthetic as modern bohemian glamour. She gravitates toward an eclectic look, mixing colors, patterns and time periods. This was Naomi’s first apartment completely alone, without having to factor in a roommate or a boyfriend’s tastes, so she pushed herself to take risks with color, pattern and art. Her office nook (above) was located in a dark corner of the loft, so Naomi decided to lighten it up with a bright blue. It was the perfect complement to her bright pink Parsons desk (she painted a vintage find with Glidden’s Very Berry). For a little contrast, Naomi added the wall shelf, a huge 50 lb. live edge piece of wood. The side cabinets are actually Ikea’s Rast drawers, which Naomi updated using Harper overlays. Thanks to Courtney Apple for the lovely photos of Naomi’s apartment. — Amy Azzarito

Naomi’s bedroom is just as girly as the office nook, but a bit more sedate. She paired an Urban Outfitters headboard (found at a sample sale for $60) with a batik dyed bedspread.
