I've taken it upon myself to go ahead and give him some options. I'm going to put together a mood board for each of his apartment's 3 main rooms and then turn it over to him.
His apartment has great bones. For a one bedroom, there is tons of space -
living room, dining room, bedroom
I made this quick mock-up of the apartment (above) so you can get idea with what we're working with.
Stay tuned for the first mood board later this week.
