So many listing photos these days are nearly identical, with every apartment given sterile staging with the same old grey couches and blue-and-white patterned rugs. We always appreciate it, then, when a seller's unique tastes come through in photos, as with this Lenox Hill studio, which is fully decked out with nautical trimmings. Yes, the seller will be taking all these tchotchkes with them, but why not use it as some inspiration for out-of-the-box decorating ideas?
