“When asked what their approach to decorating is, Steph muses, "We're definitely not minimalists. Our taste is eclectic and maybe even a little weird. We love Scandinavian furniture mixed with new and vintage items accentuated with bold color." For the interior walls, they chose a warm white to contrast the wood furniture, floors, cabinets, and closet doors. The neutral tones are balanced with pops of color through textiles, plants, vintage lamps, blankets, pillows, and art they have collected over the years.”
