The legendary interior designer Ilse Crawford observes, “home is the ongoing story of a person.” In many ways, our home is more than the color, textures, and light that fill it. To us, what makes a house a home are our collections – the feelings they evoke and the stories they hold – from your grandmother’s quilt to the rug you found while traveling. It’s about bringing in objects that add comfort, nostalgia, and at times humor — lending character and personality to each unique space.
By incorporating meaningful collections in our every day, we tell a story about who we are and where we’ve been. So, in the spirit of filling our homes with the things that we love, we’ve come up with a quick roundup of our top 5 home picks for inspired spaces.
