I have visited Lisa and Jeff’s home a few times and it’s one of my favorite spaces. I love how eclectic it is and whenever something catches my eye, there’s usually a great story behind it. I asked Lisa to tell us a little bit about their space:

“We live in an early 20th century shoe store/book store/general store converted into an open-plan living/studio space. We are collectors, and most of our finds from flea markets, our travels, and even the trash inspire much of our work. What we love most about our unconventional home is its challenges: it’s not a typical space, so we are always coming up with creative ways to decorate and utilize space, as well as strengthen communication with each other while living in close quarters. We love how the space has evolved into a larger art piece, representing who we are as artists, as well as a couple.”

    What a beautiful home! I love that it’s transformed from an old bookstore. I noticed a lot of Halloween stuff, too. Love it, especially since it’s my favorite holiday. 🙂

    I can only hope to have such a cool collection of home goods someday.
