House of Collection

I’ve found a new source of home inspiration (well, it’s not exactly new since this has been sitting in my queue for years, but it WAS new inspiration when I first saw it).

Paige Stevenson and Ahnika Meyer have transformed their Brooklyn loft into a veritable museum of lost, discarded, forgotten wonders.

I love living spaces that are thick with history and storied fragments of days gone by. Their place is a gorgeous showcase, largely due how they choose to display these “mundane” items. There is a perfect contrast of still life and lush plant growth.

    Holy crap that is astounding! I have been gathering up a lot of things (think picture number three) that mean a lot to me, and I think to you, which will need some thought like this perhaps in the Craftorium. 🙂

    This is so my dad…& now you know where I get it! 🙂

  3. I love entering homes like this. I find myself collecting and keeping more and more stuff because everything is recorded with memories which gives an object a soul. It’s hard to understand many people can’t understand that. I don’t want to sound corny but I think everyone here understands the phrase – “See with your heart and not your eyes”.

    I’m thinking, based upon the location, and the rusty tool collection that a “Lumbersexual” just might reside here:
