Poet and artist Cleo Wade has found a place of comfort in a spacious New York apartment, filled with books, trinkets and vintage finds.

“It’s really beneficial for me to have rooms where I do really specific things,” says Cleo in the clip. From a dedicated writing room to a separate desk space for typing poetry, the house is made up of a range of separate spaces that still manage to create a natural flow throughout the apartment.

While the bedroom, painted in an unusual shade of ochre is filled with natural light, the living room exudes a dark, sultry atmosphere.

“For me, I think that when you actually want to be in your home more than you want to be kind of a nomad floating around, I think that’s when you know you’ve found your home.”
