Maxwell Ryan donned himself the “apartment therapist” back in 2001 when he was working as an interior designer and life coach. His approach towards the design of a client’s home was to help them to learn enough about themselves and their own passions to create a living space that was conducive to them personally. By 2004, his Apartment Therapy newsletter morphed into a media company that has now become one of the top blogs for design inspiration, how to guides, and includes tips and tricks for everything home related, from gardening to finances. The site includes house tours from cities around the globe, a how-to guide for home maintenance and gardening, organizational and cleaning solutions, shopping guides, and articles about everyday life decisions. Apartment Therapy is unique in that it enables you to determine what styles and designs suit your taste, as well as tips and tricks as to how to accomplish your goals on your own.
