When I think of home warm feelings of comfort, familiarity, and retreat first come to mind. It's not only the place I pay rent, but also my Mom's house, my Grandma's house, and neighborhoods I've lived in before. San Francisco is my city now, but Seattle will always be home too. I love to fill my home with items that conjure up these same feelings of warmth. An inviting and cozy bed is a must as are unexpected pops of color here an there. I've picked up a lot of crafty items from designers at the shows I participate in. From funky plushies to pretty prints and paintings, filling my house with things I know I won't see everywhere else makes my space feel special.
My line of accessories is created at home so an area where it's okay to make a creative mess is required. Home is also about filling up your space with people you love. Cooking a delicious meal and entertaining my friends and family is when my home is at it's best. Last but not least, home is an escape from the rest of my hectic schedule. Since bringing work into the house can blur these lines, I love a little outdoor space that's only used for relaxing.
