I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve lived most of my life with a stereotype about people who decorate. People like artists, designers and architects liked making their home look stylish and enjoyed decorating it; and people like doctors, lawyers and accountants didn’t care, didn’t know how or didn’t want to bother. Happily, my friend Evelyn Best blew my stereotype to pieces. She’s a lawyer, and she can decorate!
Evelyn and her musician husband rent the bottom level of a Spanish Colonial Revival style residence that’s perched on a cliff overlooking the beach. And she definitely doesn’t let living in a rental hold her back from personalizing it. She’s got an amazing canvas to work with, and paints it with style. Her eclectic, yet cohesive, mix of furnishings only heighten the character of their unique apartment. Evelyn draws inspiration from many things, and impressively brings it all home; no matter how big, how heavy, how intricate or how difficult to make. And equally impressive, she does so for a steal!
She saw a similar heart sculpture on Apartment Therapy. So, guess what? She found someone to make and install one for her!
Inspired? Me, too.
Tune in next week for a Bit of Boo!…
