As I get older, I realize more and more the difference between minimal as a design trend and minimal as a lifestyle. One focuses on form and the other, on function. And the latter is what designer and seamstress Bekah Stewart is all about. Her country home in Louisville, KY, is all about comfort, function, ease of use and keeping her possessions to a minimum.
Bekah works from home where she raises 10 chickens, two goats, one guinea pig and one fish, as well as her two young boys Tristan and Collin and her dogs, Precious the husky and Devner the blue heeler. With a constant tornado of action ripping through her house, her priority is to foster a space that’s functional for everyone under her roof, through every season. Filled with light and life, Bekah’s home truly encompasses what it means to live the simple life (right down to her housewares), which favors rich textiles over decor and the great outdoors over TV (they don’t even own one!). –Sabrina
