To quote my buddy Lauren Conrad from an episode of The Hills, “You know you’re growing up when you want stuff for your apartment.” I’m going to say that you know you’re really growing up when you want to start collecting real art for your apartment. Not posters, or flags, or cheap canvases that anyone else can find – but good finds that are investments you will take no matter where you live. No one my age is doing this better than Bradley of Luella & June. Not only is her apartment decorated perfectly for a twenty-something (pretty, put-together, great pieces, and not too grown-up), but she is growing such an amazing collection of art… Not just buying pieces for the sake of filling up wall space, but finding just the right things to play to her style and taste. She has some paintings, collages, and photographs – all framed and hanging in complimentary locations and all things that I would steal off her wall in put in my own place if she would let me.
