make it yours: chris and stephen harris-smith

Chris and Stephen Harris-Smith live in this lovely California home designed by Joseph Eichler, well known for his open and spacious modern home designs built between 1950 and 1974 in Northern California. Chris and Stephen need only slide open their glass front door to enter the beautiful open atrium (my dream home has one of these!). Their use of river rock flooring throughout the interior continues to bring the outdoors inside. Chris and Stephen filled their entire home with an eclectic mix of patterns, artwork and colors. The oranges, blues and greens give off a retro vibe, and the playful decorations make the home seem so inviting. This could be one of the most creative, fun and unique sneak peeks I’ve seen on Design*Sponge! — Lauren

Funky colours, but what I’d really like to know is how they created the photo collage in the first photo…


i agree mihaela! the photo collage looks a little like an iphone pic collage my fiance has described to me that he wants to create for our entryway. how were those attached to the wall?
