When you imagine the home of Philip Wood, the Creative Director of CITIZEN:Citizen, and his wife, Tania Ketenjian, a journalist, you probably would envision a MoMA like atmosphere of carefully curated objects. Not so! Their home is a labor of love that is a reflection of their lives, past and present. It's decorated with significant items from friends and family, and virtually all of the furniture was designed and built by Philip, who is a trained carpenter. Their home is busy but uncluttered, and it's a very good example of an efficient use of space.
My/Our style: rural English woodworker meets Persian princess whilst on library tour
The inspiration for my home: Falling in love with someone and sharing a life and a space
Favorite element: the light. the calming feeling that the home just came with. the plants. the plum blossom.
Biggest challenge in designing my home: paying the mortgage
What friends say about my home: that it's comfortable and they feel welcomed
Biggest embarrassment in my home: I have none
Proudest DIY: I designed and built all the furniture…….…………………………….
Best advice given or received: be yourself... and add a glass door the your back room (ample backyard view!)
Thanks, Philip and Tania!
