Earlier this fall, we got a glimpse into Tucker and Adam’s space through their House Call. Tucker is a fashion stylist and recently started a furniture design company called SCOUT. His designs are modern and, in the best of ways, simple; he uses a mix of materials such as wood, metal, and leather. Adam is a stage actor as well as operations manager at Core Rhythm Fitness, a holistic fitness and nutrition company which focuses on body, mind, and spirit transformation.
Tucker found the place almost a year ago and couldn’t pass it up! Knowing that he was about to launch a business, though, he made the financially conscious decision to get two roommates. (Editor’s note: the rooms and the roommates are not featured in this tour, just the creative couple’s stylish spaces they decorated and share).
The apartment contains three private bedrooms, and the kitchen, living room, and bathroom are all shared spaces. Tucker and Adam occupy one of the three bedrooms in the apartment. The structural design of the apartment is modern, but Tucker and Adam have filled their spaces with antique and handmade furniture along with other unique decor items to give their home a warm, laid-back feel.
Apartment Therapy Survey:
Our Style: Industrial and Modern
Inspiration: Everything! From vintage style to mid-century elements. We believe in using every piece in our space.
