One of my guilty pleasures in life is coming home from work, kicking off my clothes, putting on long johns and my kimono and browsing through a handful of my favorite design sites on the internet. Sneak peeks into the homes of various artists I admire featured on said blogs/websites are my personal favorite.
Today I stumbled upon a proverbial window into the home of letterpress printer Jordan Provost. Amazing taste. This is the way I would dress my home if I had a home to dress. Thoughtful, warm, inspiring, interesting, creative, bold. Amazing taste, indeed. This is a home to sit down to an insane meal and roost for hours in. I bet it looks phenomenal at night. Don't get me wrong, I love my apartment (considering what I have to work with); but owning a home is obviously permanent (more or less). Llife giving on a more longer lasting basis. With this entire packing up and moving house ordeal that is looming (four weeks? Shit) has been a semi pleasant reminder to me of what should stay (forever) and what should go. I am psyched to report that my bed, the kitchen table and the hanging chair (that I found in one of my ex boyfriend's basement and bought for a sinfully low price) are the only pieces I am attached to. Everything else is replaceable, I think. Keeping with this mindset, I think I will actually be able to pack now. Enjoy these homes as picture below, I sure have.
Below are a number of other photographs I have compiled over time. Too many hours spent perusing the homes of strangers. This home below is one of my favorites. Owner unknown, sadly. Below that are a number of others taken from individual living spaces. I am drawn to industrial looking pieces, Danish furniture design from the 70's, mauve, grey, inviting chairs/couches, plants, checked flooring, and properly framed art. But that is just me.
