You may have noticed that I’ve started another category recently called Interesting Homes. I did that because I love looking at real homes and how people live even if they aren’t necessarily my personal style. I think that’s why I feature so many homes on FTRB that could be described as bohemian. You know the ones – quirky, layered, often a bit cluttered. Even if those homes are a little too much for me personally, I find them to be the most interesting because it’s that stuff that tells you who the owners are and something about their lives. I guess I’m just a big voyeur!
That’s why I was drawn to this Berlin apartment of artist Zora Mann. There are so many things to take in and none of it seems superfluous or just for show; you get the sense that this is how she really lives. I think some designers can go too far in wanting to make things look good. After all, homes are for living in first and foremost.

Since I got back from my trip, I’ve been really trying to get organized for the rest of the year because things are getting very busy. Looking at my calendar, there isn’t going to be a lot of free time so even though I just got home, I’m getting ready to go on a little shopping road trip. I need to do some scouting for projects and to stock my shop (big announcement about that coming soon) and next week looks like the only chance I’ll have for a while. So, FTRB will be coming to you from somewhere in southern Georgia/northern Florida next week. I’ve never been down there so it should be an adventure! If you have any good antique/vintage shopping spots in the region, please leave them in the comments or shoot me an email.
Thanks so much and have a great weekend!
