When I found out my new amiga Michelle Drewes was a photographer, I blurted out, "I have not seen your house but I MUST MUST MUST videoblog about it!" So the next day, Michelle graciously let me interview her in her lovely 1929 bungalow & she failed to disappoint. She & her husband bought it as a fixer and took a year to renovate. (It's still not done! She's revamping the backroom to be a photo studio!). Below are photos of her home & my chat with this lovely San Francisco based shutterbug. (She's really rockin' that black lace top & chunky necklace)
To get Michelle Drewes' look, follow these design tips:
- Take a risk: Use bold complimentary colors that others would shy away from
- Mix Ornate & Modern: Juxtapose West Elm pieces with family heirlooms. Did you see those exquisite china pieces placed against a blood red wall? Genius!
- Design Inspiration can come from anywhere....like her Grandma!
- Don't copy magazines verbatim. Put your own personality into your home. Check out the images of renowned artist Shepard Fairy on Michelle's walls! (He's the Obama poster guy)
