Sometimes it can be difficult for a husband and wife to combine styles when decorating a new place. Imagine if, on top of that, your home's previous owner had left traces of his own larger-than-life style. What would you do? Would you tear it all out and start over?
Not if you're Jen and Mark Adams, you wouldn't. Creative and eclectic themselves, Jen (a marketing director for Urban Outfitters) and Mark (a graphic designer with Maskar Designs) decided to embrace some of the more outrageous design elements of their new home and incorporate them into their own unique style.
Collectors of things as well as of styles, Jen and Mark have filled their home with expressive objects that speak to their various interests and travels. Whether it's salt and pepper shakers, Phillies memorabilia, amusement park photos from the 70's and 80's, or group shots of people they don't even know, these quirky collections add charm and warmth to their inviting abode.
