Marvin has homes in Manhattan and San Francisco (lucky!) and his interiors have been featured in Metropolitan Magazine, The New York Times, Chicago Tribune and on HGTV. Even if you don’t think you are familiar with Marvin’s name, you have probably seen his work on many occasions. He has worked in visual merchandising for stores such as Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, West Elm, Hold Everything, Gap, and Williams-Sonoma Home. Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post. It was his entry for Apartment Therapy’s Smallest, Coolest Apartment contest in 2007. In the video, Marvin takes the viewer on a guided tour of his beautiful apartment.
Marvin’s 250 square foot apartment is home to 11 chic lamps! He calls himself a “Lamp Tramp”! I love it. I will have to start calling Fabian that. It is evident that he has maximized every square inch of the space.
The chocolate and white palette continues into the bathroom. I actually think it’s a great idea to utilize the same palette throughout a small home like this. It really unifies the space. No space is safe from the Lamp Tramp! Marvin’s bathroom hosts a floor lamp and a small lamp on the vanity.
