Home Decor

{outside/inside} modern pink pop…



When I lived in Brooklyn, I'd walk by beautiful brownstones at night and see glimpses of the homes, wondering about the families that lived there, what the inside looks like, and how it's decorated. Now that I live in Silver Lake in LA, there are even more types of eclectic homes to dream about. I love the idea of imagining how a home might be decorated on the inside based on it's exterior style, so today, we're starting a new column called Outside/Inside. Joanna, who spends her days as a home designer at Anthropologie and works on food posts here on Thursdays, will now be exploring this juxtapostion of inside and out every other week. We hope you it not only stirs your curiousity about homes you see, but also inspires some design ideas for your own home…

OUTSIDE / Pops of pink and geometric shapes on this pre-fab house photographed by Josef Schulz calls for…

…an INSIDE that's full of whimsical, modern pink with touches of warm wood and metal accents. I imagine that a fiction writer born in the 60's or a botanist from Miami might live here… — Joanna
