We first fell in love with designer Stacy Pancake through her food-themed letterpress cards. We snatched up a few of the "foodie" cards and then lusted after the "dried goods" set over at the Curiosity Shoppe. We think her illustrations are quite beautiful in their understatement and simplicity and we were quite pleased, but not surprised, to see that same aesthetic manifested in her home.

Soft organic images, textures and colors are kicked up a notch by small pops of color or graphic elements. We love that every item seems accounted for, loved and intentional. It makes her calm apartment feel genuine, warm and comfortable in its simplicity.
AT Survey: My/Our style: I am drawn to simple clean lines and design that stands the test of time. Contemporary, organic, ethnic, mid-century, bohemian and western best describes my style. I've collected a lot of furniture and interior objects over the years, but the ones I have not given away are timeless pieces Inspiration: Nature is present throughout my apartment in various shapes, colors and materials; juxtaposed with urban influences. Most importantly, I like things to be interesting to look at, nice to touch, and versatile to use. Indigo, bonsai, succulents, ceramics, clay, stones, bones, hemp, ethnic textiles, wood and wool, and my art collection Favorite Element: Neighborhood: I live on a tree lined street with a big Japanese Maple shading my apartment. Biggest Challenge: Lack of storage space What Friends Say: Great location; I cannot believe you have a washer/dryer; You could throw a party here. Biggest Embarrassment: Electrical Cords Proudest DIY: Enclosed a nook with an old real estate sign for storage space in the Dining Room Biggest Indulgence: Art, McRoskey Mattress Best advice: Feng Shui hints Dream source: furniture// bddw joe kish modernity eBay objects|design// atys design moss landscape products rose and radish art// jeff morris david fought top pause allen pearce outdoor// the gardener flora grubb >> Enter Slideshow
