A Light and Textile Filled Philly Apartment

Design*Sponge

Originally from New York and DC respectively, Nina and Will Pace met in grad school in Baltimore before making their way to Philadelphia, where theyve been renting this apartment in the citys Manayunk neighborhood for the past two years. Ninas background is in painting, which has led her to a lot of freelance work. Her paintings were heavily pattern based, so making the transition into textile design was a natural fit and led to her starting her own line, Ash Anchor. Meanwhile, Will is a Project Manager at The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and a freelance a photographer. They both used to do a lot of collage work, which influences their decorating style. The style consists of piecing together objects and layering items from different places in a way, building their own real-life puzzles. With a cozy sense of nostalgia, Nina describes it their home as living a timeline. Many thanks Nina and Will! ?Anne  Image above: As a textile designer (and lover of textiles) I tend to get very ?pattern-happy? and the bedroom is a great place to indulge. The elephant tapestry by Magical Thinking from Urban Outfitters is the perfect base to add layers of color. The tapestry at the end of the bed is from a friend from her many travels, the two back pillow shams are Patch NYC for Target, and the front pillow is a little guy I made from scrap fabric. The middle pillows are an Ash Anchor test run with the pattern from our Reverie Scarf. I?m thinking of adding some home items to the line and it?s fun to be my own guinea pig!
