Perhaps the only thing more enviable than donning Alexander Wang's rock n' roll-fueled label? Designing the fashion icon's equally-cool apartment. Enter Ryan Korban: the 25-year-old interior prodigy who satiated Wang's place with his rock-infused (yet equally serene and tasteful) eye for decorum. And the buck doesn't stop there for Korban, either. You'd think it would, because where else could you possibly go but down after landing Wang? But that's where Korban proves us wrong. This guy has what it takes. And...zero wrinkles or gray hair to prove it. (25?!?!)

Yep, he rocks.
Quite literally.

I love his simple, relatively clean and neutral aesthetic. His designs are rooted in tradition, yet punched up with the emphatic use of dark, glossy hues, impossible-to-ignore texture, luxe fabric, metallic detailing, the perfect proportion of eye-catching color (like, that orange and mint green), and shapely furniture silhouettes.

That, my friends, is how it's done.
