While Mr. Forager & I are on the road, making our way to California, we’re rerunning Artsy Forager’s most popular posts. This post originally published on February 1, 2012. Enjoy!
Here I am ready to make yet another embarrassing confession to you: I’m nosy. I’m not a Facebook stalker or anything like that, but when the hubby and I are out for a walk around whatever neighborhood in which we happen to find ourselves living that month ( haha ), I can’t help but spy inside people’s homes. I mean, I don’t park myself in the bushes like a Peeping Lesley, but I love catching glimpses of other people’s interiors. So of course, peeking inside the homes of creative folks is irresistible to me!
So, for a little mid-week fun, I thought we’d catch a glimpse of the homes of some very creative ladies.. all artists in their own way.
I love the way artists’ living spaces so often reflect the palette and style of their work– never more true than in Kelly Reemsten’s Mid-Century inspired L.A. loft. The artist known for her pop-style paintings of ladies dressed in vintage garb dresses her home in much the same way. A neutral background compliments pops of color and classically mod furnishings.
The home of Janie Bryant, the brilliant costume designer behind the to-die-for fashions on Mad Men, is as glamourous as you would expect, with subtle hints at the retro styles she embraces on the job.
Is it any surprise that fashion maven Kate Spade’s home has a classic, preppy feel? But I love that her choice of artwork reveals a personality behind the perfection.
The Brooklyn apartment of artist Lily Stockman is an eclectic, comforting space peppered with global influences reflecting her travels, which include a recent artist’s residency in India. Just as in her work, Stockman’s home is filled with simple patterns and soft yet vibrant color.
