Do you think your work as an interiors photographer affects how you approached designing this home?
‘I definitely think about how the room is going to be photographed – not so much in buying pieces, but more so in deciding how to arrange the objects. Any time I’m shooting someone’s house, I also get inspired. It’s fun to pick little details from different styles that I love and combine them in my own home.’
Where do you find your pieces?
‘Whenever I’m out and about, I’ll always try to stop at a new antique shop. The Rose Bowl, the huge monthly vintage fair here in LA is great; I try to go at 5.30am to get the best stuff. I also use Etsy and eBay – they’re good if you know exactly what you’re looking for.’
Do you bring pieces back from your travels?
‘My suitcase is often packed with little pieces I’ve acquired on a trip. My boyfriend and I went to Italy recently and we visited Matera, a town made out of sandstone. It was so magical. We found this little shop in a cave, lit entirely by candles, where the owner made miniature versions of the town’s houses out of the same sandstone. I bought one of those and it’s a beautiful reminder of that trip.’
