So I may have creeped out my sister yesterday afternoon when I sent her the real estate listing for Claiborne Swanson Frank's stylish New York apartment. I tried to convince her that I was not stalking and that I just happened to stumbled upon it while looking at The Foo Dog Ate My Homework, but I don't think she believed I word I was saying. See I was just trying to help a sista out. Seriously. My sister just recently purchased her first condo and Claiborne's living room is one of the only images she has pinned to her living room inspiration board on Pinterest. So being the nice sister that I am, I thought she'd enjoy scoping out the unedited images from the real estate listing.
As much as I love looking at the beautiful/extremely styled images published in shelter magazines, I'd rather see how people really live. These pictures confirm that Claiborne does in fact own several tv's, she has a plethora of internet cords, she does not have central A/C, and she does not own the sunniest apartment in Manhattan. Yay! She is just like the rest of us but has a killer art collection and amazing leopard stools. Does anyone else out there enjoy stalking real estate as much as I do or should I be enlisting in some sort of real estate stalkers anonymous group? Take a look at the images from Elle Decor tell me which version of the apartment you prefer–styled or unstyled?
