Today's tour is the second in a collaborative series curated by Jeanine Hays and Bryan Mason of Aphrochic for Apartment Therapy. They handpicked homes from around the world to share that capture the culture and style that they celebrate in their book, Remix: Decorating with Culture, Objects, and Soul.
Name: Rena Thiagarajan
Location: Russian Hill; San Francisco, California
Size: ~800 square feet
Years lived in: 8 years; rented
Rena's cozy San Francisco apartment is truly a feast for the eyes. There are vintage photographs of India, containers from Marrakech, a rare rug from Kazakistan — a beautiful symphony of treasures collected over the years, and each with its own story. You might be surprised to learn that she was an attorney for several years before she decided to change careers and pour her resources into an enterprise called Project Bly, a San Francisco start-up that combines a passion for world travel and shopping curated art, textiles and more. Rena's apartment clearly reflects both of these passions, so it's easy to see why she would be the "Adventurer in Chief" of Project Bly!
