Take away the laptop and tattoos and it would be easy to mistake twenty-something illustrator Lisa Vanin’s tiny, old-fashioned apartment for a knitting granny's cozy den. Her homey digs are reminiscent of a previous generation’s warmth and slow pace, thanks to her nostalgic collection of old-soul treasures. If you haven't visited your grandma in a while, this tour will surely remind you to make that call — all that's missing here is the fireplace and rocking chair.
