Decor Tips: Maximizing Condo Space

With urbanization on the rise [previously featured], a multitude of baby boomers & millennials find themselves settling in metropolitan areas nationwide. Naturally – supply follows demand. In Philadelphia’s case [via] apartment complex construction, high-rise condo buildings, & multi-use residential development, around the Center City radius of downtown Philly. The implication? Furnishing & decor strategy takes a 180 from spacious, multi-acre suburban dwellings, to the limited square footage allocations associated with condo communities & urban developments. As Gen’s X & Y reestablish their ideal whereabouts, scaling & flexible furnishing take on new levels of aesthetic importance. Take advantage, design accordingly!
