Peter's "From Scratch" Newlywed Nest

House Call

Name: Peter
Location: Japantown — San Jose, California

Our house utilizes a lot of natural light and includes a broad mix of colors. The style is modern and fun, drawing inspiration from Apartment Therapy house tours. We are fans of many of the classics such as Nelson and Eames, but are always on the look out for new styles and anything we see that catches our eye.

We are huge fans of art and very proud that most of the artwork in the house was done by myself and my wife, or by our close friends. We base a lot of our color choices on the artwork that we have created, and vice versa. Being newlyweds, this was our first home together and pretty much furnished the entire place from scratch. Our challenge was to efficiently fill the space with not too much, while making it feel cozy and fun.

Thanks, Peter!
