Again in June, this former private stylist-turned-photographer obtained an itch to redecorate. Like, significantly redecorate. “I bought every little thing on Craigslist and Provide Up, and began from scratch,” Elizabeth advised me. I used to be barely jealous of the journey she’d simply been on. From scratch, you say? Swoon. I actually do have a factor for clean slates. Over the course of the subsequent a number of months, Elizabeth made common visits to an enormous consignment retailer in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood for attention-grabbing items, surfed Amazon extra usually than her associates really feel is affordable, and splurged on objects she knew she wished to final. Extra importantly, she took her time. She’d solely completed placing the ultimate touches on it a couple of week earlier than I got here to snap pics—or, that morning, for those who depend the recent flowers she dashed out to get final minute.
Strolling into her front room, it is on the verge of minimalism, however nonetheless feels very cozy and heat. A terrific sofa with fluffy pillows—significantly one which occurs to be that wealthy shade of orange—have a tendency to do this. Elizabeth’s personal pictures dangle in choose spots all through her residence. Her favourite (and mine) is a shot she took of San Francisco’s Sutro Baths, sitting above the sofa. She additionally has a few of her originals mingling with bought items within the visitor tub—turning on that mild is a stunning shock as you lay eyes on an surprising mini gallery. And the cutest accent on this Queen Anne condominium is unquestionably Elizabeth’s candy cat, Lucy, who appears to be in all places you go. Though she struck a number of poses for the digital camera in the long run, more often than not she wished to be nearer to me than a close-up actually requires, angling for some stomach scratches. Not that my arm wanted twisting. For me, fluffy kitty tummies are proper up there with clean slates.
