This NYC Loft Is Filled With *Actually* Affordable Decor — House Call

Name: Jessie Ruane, boyfriend Ryan, and Dusty the pup
Location: Prospect Heights — Brooklyn, NY
Size: 1000 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, renting

I started researching elsewhere. A little over a year later, I’ve filled my home with affordable finds, Ikea hacks, and hand-me-downs.
