When I moved into my apartment four years ago I couldn’t wait to start decorating. I was starting this new life as a single parent and wanted a home that not only reflected our personalities but one that was warm, peaceful and welcoming.

One morning a few years ago, sitting in a building management office somewhere Uptown, I signed a 12 month lease for a two bedroom apartment overlooking the East River. A few days later I sat on my newly purchased mattress on the floor of my unfurnished bedroom with a glass of wine and a broken heart. The next day, my two kids would be joining me and my little family of four would officially become one of three…
