Read It: Apartment Therapy
Colby Kern pulls inspiration from a blog all about creating great style at home.
Apartment Therapy features house tours focusing on a variety of sizes and every style imaginable. “I would rather see what ‘real’ people are doing than flawless magazine photos or things that are a little out of reach,” Kern says.
An Affinity for Vignettes
Kern’s favorite things to style are vignettes, which is a skill he uses at work that carries over to home. Many of the homes featured on Apartment Therapy make use of this design strategy. “I love seeing and relating to how people create little stories through found objects,” Kern says.
A Collected Look
The advice Kern comes back to again and again is to tell a story through your home, which is why he loves seeing what inspires others. In Kern’s opinion, this is best accomplished by mixing old and new and investing in pieces that will last.
