sneak peek: sarah shreves

by Amy Azzarito

We’re starting off the day with the Los Angeles home of artist, stylist and photographer Sarah Shreves. Sarah moved into this house with three of her best friends just six months ago. Initially the space felt dark, cramped and dirty. Out came the paintbrushes and every wall was painted a different shade of gray. With its fresh new look, the girls have christened their home “The White House” and jokingly call themselves the First Ladies. Thanks, Sarah, Jenna, Rachel & Jenn! — Amy A.

Image above: Our dining room is the central gathering place of the home where we share stories, meals and life with one another. The table originally functioned as an art table found in the office of Invisible Children, a non-profit where my roommates and I worked. We spent many long hours around this table booking tours, brainstorming and laughing together.

Image above: My room is a collection of meaningful pieces that remind me of inspiring relationships in my life. The painting on the left was given to me as a gift by a special friend, and the small ladder placed beside my bed belonged to my father. (Paint color: Behr Silver Drop)
