Best Advice: Try and build things yourself. Not only will you feel accomplished, but you will feel more connected to your home as you learn and grow along the way.
Biggest Challenge: Living in an unfinished space (it had no stairs!) while we were building the elements we wanted.
Inspiration: Our inspiration is the design inherent in nature. Then, we bought this blue velvet couch with gold legs off Craigslist which went well with the warmth of the old wood floors and the green of the plants.
We decided to make the eight-foot diameter astrology clock as a cryptic art piece that would also keep track of where the planets, sun, and moon are in the night sky.
Our Style: An urban sanctuary that is mysterious, functional, and playful. We built the yoga walls for Ashley to teach therapeutics yoga, and added the spine stencils so she could reference the anatomy during classes.
