The only thing better than finding the right apartment is finding the right spouse. Or is it the other way around?

Either way, once you have both, it's time to play the real estate version of "The Newlywed Game" and face the daunting challenge of melding two homes into one. Brides magazine evidently realizes the risks involved and has joined with Ikea and interior designer Inson Dubois Wood to unveil the "Newleywed Nest" apartment at 311 East 11th St. in Manhattan.

And while the two-bedroom triplex penthouse (with a 2,000 square-foot private deck and a $3.545 million price tag) may be an anomaly for most young, just-married couples, there's much that can be learned from the show home's interior design.
