Yesterday we introduced you to Steven Alan. Today we're giving you the inside scoop on our own stylish Studio dad (and Christiane's husband) Joshua Young. Our laid back, sporty president and CEO here at DwellStudio downloads us on everything from his day-to-day style to his go-to family spots around the city, all in honor of our Father's Day Facebook photo contest.
Meet Joshua Young
Q: What’s your 9-to-5 job?
A: President at DwellStudio.
Q: Where are you originally from?
A: Toronto, Canada.
Q: Where do you live now?
A: Soho, NYC.
Q: Where are your favorite places to go with your kids in your neighborhood?
A: My kids are born and raised in Soho, so they have grown up walking and scootering the neighborhood with no shortage of anything inspiring or interesting to see. Thompson Park and Washington Square are longtime favorites which is a pretty cool way to grow up.

Q: Describe your everyday style.
A: Casual and tailored; and usually something purple/lavender. For some reason I can’t seem to get away from that color in my wardrobe.
Q: What is your favorite part about your home?
A: I lived and breathed every single part of the design and construction, so it feels very personal and comfortable. We designed it as a real family home; an oasis from a busy urban life where we can entertain but not so formal that we don’t mind if the kids zoom around on their scooters.

Q: How do you balance your work, personal and family lives?
A: Still working on it! I make a point of always having breakfast with my kids and taking them to school, then we try and sit down for dinner altogether at the end of each day. It makes a world of difference. In between and after, I get whatever I need to do, done.
