If you’re lucky enough to have your entire house (or townhouse, condo,—maybe even your bedroom or simply your closet) just the way you like it, we envy you. Though the entourage of glossies that arrives in your mailbox each month might have you think otherwise, most of us just have a few places in our homes that we call “just right.”
For Maeve, its the buffet/console/sideboard in her main room, dressed up with playful relics and a poppy Warhol print. Ali likes the little batch of modern handcloths, vintage ceramics, colorful soaps and minty candles that sweeten the counter of her small bathroom.
It might be your entire basement re-do, or the simple art spread you’ve created above your sofa. Whatever it is, we want to see it! Bringing the best of local (and non-local, too!) house-peeping right to your desktop, we ask that you send in photos of your favorite (cool, pretty, cute) spot in your house. Because we’re all looking for a dose of inspiration and love to share ideas.
Don’t forget to give us any additional info: the story behind your sleek porcelain birds or where you scored that Eames-esque rocking chair, and WHY you love this spot as much as you do.
You send the photos, we’ll post them. Send your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org with “favorite spot” in the subject line.
The above image captures a colorful spot in Maeve’s turn-of-the-century bungalow. She scored the Warhol print at the Warhol Store, the “Coink” piggy bank from Karkula, and the shapely artichokes from Hip & Humble.
