[Above: The tree stump was “rescued” by my fiancé and I from a local park. We lovingly call it Log. The couch was inherited from my parents house. A true 1970s gem! I loved the shape (but not the fabric) so I sewed up a cover using the heavy weight linen from my line. The trunk was pulled out of the trash a few years back when I lived in Columbus. But… not everything I own is old. The Nama Rococo print was a gift from my fiancé last year and the Flor carpet tiles were bought to decorate the floor of my booth at a trade show. The lamp is from Room and Board and the two linen pillows are from my line.]
The working fireplace is the main focus in the living room. The mantle is really beautiful all by itself so I usually only have a few photos on top. The folding chair was bought on Martha’s Vineyard the summer I graduated college. It marked the beginning of my (not so secret) chair fetish.
I have a heavy weight linen throw (from my line) on my bed. It hides cat hair perfectly! I made my faux case study bed using two pieces of plywood and stainless steal legs bought from hairpinlegs.com. The side table was bought at the store, MiCA, in Cincinnati.
The chair on the left was found on Ebay. It needed a lot of love when it arrived so I spent some time cleaning it up. The dresser is from Ikea. The screen print hanging on the wall was bought at the Renegade Craft Fair last summer in Chicago. The chair [on the right] was bought in Lexington, Kentucky. I have an Ikea faux fur on it to keep the cats from scratching it to bits.
My studio space is in my apartment. This room holds one of my printing tables and a ton of metal shelving for fabric, frames, and screen printing supplies.
