Reader's home

Reader Laurel Walter lives in southern Oregon and this is her fabulous home. These shots were taken by Matthew Millman (my earlier post on Matthew here) for a magazine feature. Laurel says her home is a trifecta project involving herself and Jennifer Bright, her partner in their interiors styling business, Twist, and Dewayne Lumpkin, owner of Home Economics. Unfortunately the magazine folded and Lauren's home remained unpublished but I am so jealous because Laurel has these amazing photos! I spy so much that I love. I'm ticking off the industrial items and found objects that I want for my place but most of all I'd kill for a wonderful outdoor room like Laurel's.

Love the home, its freshness, the bedroom and I especially love the round galvanized steel piece with the books. Any idea as to what exactly that is?

What an amazing home! I truelly loved it! All the colours and decorations is spot on! If I had a home like that I wouldn't leave, even for work, just stay in bed and enjoy!

So much to love - the industrial pieces, the metal letters, the book carousel, the vintage bulbs, the globes, the flip clock.... I could go on and on.

Amazing home! So calm and peaceful. The mix of natural, vintage, and industrial elements strikes a great balance. Also the globe collection is unusual and really adds to the character of the space.

Luv the floorlamps in the dining area. So much creativity in this space!
