Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt must be doing something right—they are one of the few success stories from The Bachelor franchise, now happily married and living together in New York City.
They’re a match made in heaven: loyal, enamored, sweet as can be, and perhaps most importantly, both are neat freaks who love a neutral color palette.
Interior design is a shared interest for our Bachelor sweethearts, and a recent partnership with Homesense allowed them to completely revamp their 700-square-foot apartment with new furniture, storage pieces, and decor.
They learned a lesson or two in sharing their creative liberty through design, crafting a space that feels right for both of them, and now, keeping their space as neat as can be (or trying to). Luckily, they shared some of these tips with us.
As mentioned, the pair went to town at Homesense stocking up on fresh finds for their apartment, including gorgeous brown accent chairs, lovely wall art, and cute decorative accents like throw blankets and candles—Amabile's personal favorite.
One of the couple's favorite finds, though, was a dresser that proved to be a storage savior in their space.
“When we went shopping, we knew we needed functional pieces and things that were going to help us keep the space organized,” Pitt explains. “The first thing that caught our eye was this massive dresser that we ended up getting. We want the space to look cute, but we also don’t want it to look like a mess.”
