In the Upper West Side of New York City, Marcia Young Cantarella lives in an apartment that is full of important memories from the past, many of which chronicle the journey of her father, the civil rights leader Whitney M. Young Jr, according to The New York Times.

The news source reports that bookshelves line almost every wall in the apartment, making for a labyrinthine effect where thousands of books and ancient photographs reside. One entire wall is full of books about her father and the way that he impacted the civil rights movement. There are biographies and even two that were written by Young himself.

In Cantarella's bedroom, there are posters of the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge, which represent her late husband's achievements in promoting festivities that are based on both of these landmarks.

There are also original paintings and many of them come from family friends or personal connections, so each one resonates with meaning, according to the news source.

Experts claim that harsh sunlight can make the colors of paintings deteriorate and may also break down the covers and papers of books. For this reason, it might be wise to invest in a pair of window treatments such as roman shades. These treatments are available in many different colors and patterns, so they are able to complement any room's theme in a tasteful fashion.
