Jersey city and its Stunning Streetscape and Thriving Art Culture

As for me, Jersey City is where home is. Then again, I call it my own city, across the Hudson River from NYC. A few years ago, someone visiting New York city asked me why I like living in these tiny, cramped apartments. Despite the fact that it is not entirely comfortable for daily lives? Even though we sometimes see dirt and muck on pavements, where the subway stops are dim, dingy, and cold, a stench is climbing out the stairs leading to a concrete cityscape. Besides, walking in crowds is no less cumbersome than predicting the future. 
But, for the most part, I think I have figured it out. For me, it is the life behind a place, the pulse, the vibe, almost like living to enjoy what crosses the path and find beauty in it. Particularly, it is the process of the mortals who contrive, of inhabitants who build spaces, a mixture of shadow, geometry, shapes, and tangled mess of dreams. Moreover,  finding why trees accompany to make streets, why lights glitter to make it appear like stars dropping. And why places with perfume and music make for an inviting place!

Step inside! Enter our Living Space! The inception of this space was a desire for a positive, peaceful, and light-filled space. We believed in intentionally understated architecture with a minimalist design language. We drew inspiration from Brutalist and Scandinavian styles or even, say, waiting to be transported to Marfa, Texas. We chose a crisp, white backdrop for our wall with accents of mid-toned hues for warmth, texture, and tactility.
