I have a hard time looking through interior magazines/blogs nowadays where everything always seems just right. Steven Kurutz's article "How to Tell When You’re Over-Propped," is a great dissection of this trend. When Ben and I moved from Oakland to Austin, we purged a lot of "props" out of our home. Having finally unpacked the last box (3 years and 1 home renovation later), I can safely say that our prop count is pretty low. My tolerance for clutter is pretty low.
A couple of weeks ago I found a wonderful home tour via Refinery 29 of artists Jay Nelson & Rachel Kaye, photographed by Molly DeCoudreaux. They live in the outer Sunset of San Francisco, an underrated neighborhood a bit off the beaten path and close to the beach.
I love how light and airy their home is, but also that it's filled with their art and feels like a real home, not an über staged space like most home tours. After checking out their work, I found that they had also done a residency at JB Blunk, a really special place that I'll save for another day.
This shoe collection looks so much like my own closet I had to post.
