house & home

September 9, 2020

I love walking into a home that feels like a self portrait, one that tells the story of the person living in it. I like to scan the books, photographs and tchotchke on the shelves. At best, these vignettes –– coloured glass, vintage tea boxes, shells found at a beloved beach –– provide tiny glimpses into the homeowner’s psyche. This wall caught my eye, and not just because of the Marlin. I love the mix of ceramics, books and bones. The shelf is curated, but not contrived. It feels warm, thoughtful and interesting. It’s busy, but loosely arranged. It makes me wonder who lives in this house; better yet, it makes me want to have a cup of tea with them.
