Quick “6 Must-Haves” for Every Hipster Apartment

• December 6, 2011

What is Hipster?

Hipster is a subculture of a man or woman in his/her 20′s or 30′s that thrives off of indie-rock, vintage furnishings, ironic/off-beat/untraditional art, skinny jeans, and liberal politics.

If you are hipster or want to be a hipster, how would you decorate your living spaces? There are some what you would call “hipster standards”, these items used to identify you as a hipster, try to obtain them and have them be displayed in a highly visible location in your apartment.

So without further ado, here are quick “6 must-haves” for your apartment:

1. Record Player w/ Record Collection

  • Beatles
  • 70s rock
  • 80s rock/new wave
  • 90s rap/hip hop
  • Indie rock
  • Punk
  • Jazz
  • Funk/Soul
  • Obscure artists/records (like Johnny Thunders, Roky Erickson, or George Burns Sings)

2. Indie Rock/Old School Band Show Poster

  • Black Sabbath
  • Alice Cooper
  • The Pixies
  • John Coltrane
  • New York Dolls
  • Pavement

3. Vintage Furnishings

4. Bookcase Filled with “Classics”

  • On the Road (Jack Kerouac)
  • Slaughter House 5 (Kurt Vonnegut)

6. Taxidermy
