Every item in Aimee and David’s home has its own unique story. I first visited their apartment for their annual “East Meets West” dinner party, in which each guest is invited to bring a traditional dish from their heritage to share. That first night- over spicy pork and cabbage, followed by eggplant parmesan- I heard the story about the lamp from Butte, MT, the tray tables Aimee hunted down on eBay, and the blood, sweat, and tears David put into building their mirrored Ikea wardrobe. It was evident that the welcoming, mix-n-match, from-scratch attitude of their annual dinner party infused the rest of their lives- including their decor.
