Kitschy and colorful pieces turn this rented apartment into a flea-market haven.

ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT TASKS FOR VINTAGE-LOVERS IS LETTING GO OF THEIR TREASURES. It’s painful to think about getting rid of even one out of a hundred antique bottles, but sometimes life requires a change. For professional organizer Jeanie Engelbach of apartmentjeanie, a recent move to a smaller apartment forced her to rethink her treasures and downsize her beloved collections.

“I came from a larger apartment with more wall space,” she says. “I had to eliminate three-quarters of what I own.”

Jeanie’s new 775-square-foot apartment in New York City required some creative thinking when it came to establishing her new look. “You have to consider the new space,” she says. “You don’t want it to look exactly like your old home.” With less wall space and fewer display surfaces, Jeanie had to reorganize some of her collections and say goodbye to others. Rather than bring everything to her new place and decide then what to keep, she made a plan before she moved out to make the process less stressful. “I measured and did paper templates and laid it all out on paper to see what I could actually bring,” she says.
