FAITH'S TREE HOUSE VISIT
11 January 2012
Faith recently launched her awesome site, Call Me Faith which you need to check out because it features all her beautiful interior design projects. I did a few snaps of her home for her portfolio and my goodness, was I in boho-centric wonderland. Every corner is carefully curated to tell an interesting story. There's a quirky charm to it all, too, like that ladylegs nutcracker. Her home is both lived in and inviting. The second I walked in, I was greeted by Faith's vibrant spirit, plus a chilled glass of vino. Now, that's how you do! Oh, and did I forget to mention that she's Justina's sis. Amazingness runs in the family so I'm inspired to the double max!
And now, let's hear Faith talk about her fun tree house. Wish I could hang out there everyday! Take it away Faith! —
The house was built 100 years ago as a two story, one family home. I think the house is about 650 sq ft. In the 50's it was converted into a main house with an 'inlaw suite' above. These sort of constructions are often illegal these days due to zoning restrictions, so we feel extra lucky to live up here in this funny little 'in law suite'.
I am totally inspired by small spaces and the cozy, intimate experience that they can create. I have a fetish for house boats, trailers and tree houses. What makes our house so particular is that it has these small spaces, with funny shapes to the rooms, and the abundance of windows and light also give a sense of airy freshness. It's a winning combo ;-)
My personal style is eclectic. I like objects and art from all over the world that tell a story, provoke laughter and joy. When I travel or am living abroad the first places I go to are the thrift stores. So my home is full of funny little treasures from all over.
