I can’t get enough of Ryan Korban as of late. These images of his SoHo studio were taken for the Wall Street Journal in December 2009 (I don’t know how I missed this!). His is 400 sq. ft space is divine.. I think I’ve spent close to an hour studying his living room. When viewing these photos, do you ladies catch yourself squinting in order to get a better look at the titles of his books? I certainly do! But, his art collection is what really catches my eye. I’d love to add some nudes to my gallery wall (I bet you could find great originals on etsy).
I see a kindred spirit in the young designer. The journalist notes, “Mr. Korban recently got a dining room table, but he put too much atop it to actually eat at it.” That sounds a lot like my place! I can’t help but cover all flat surfaces in my bedroom with books and shells and decorative accessories.. it’s an issue. I feel like most collectors have this problem (take Sibella Court, for example). I really think that the only solution is more space, as I am too attached to my books and things to give them away. Do you have this problem, too?
