When Hank Scollard was a child growing up in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, Michigan, his mom would take him to open houses. The family wasn’t looking to move, but Hank’s mom loved to glimpse how others lived in and decorated their homes. These informal “house tours,” along with his mother’s penchant for DIY projects, undoubtedly influenced Hank, who grew up to be an architect and repurposer of objects within the home. Now Hank has come full circle, opening up his Inman Square apartment to a House Tour. Filled with the best and most bizarre, Hank’s home is a small slice of history and, like all collections, is subjective to the eye and heart of its curator.
