Simple Design Lessons From Michael Bargo
One of our favorite instagram feeds to stalk for inspiration is that of furniture dealer and interior designer, Michael Bargo. Michael lives in a one-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights where he is constantly transforming his decor and tweaking art and textiles—most of which can be purchased via his Chinatown gallery. Here's a few design lessons we've learned from observing his ever-evolving home.
