A Global Eclectic Home with a Handmade Feel in Phoenix Arizona


Recently photographer Raya Carlisle was in  Phoenix, Arizona visiting a friend when she met Bjorn Maggie Olson and decided to have a spontaneous photo shoot at their delightful home in the Windsor Square Historic District of central Phoenix. Bjorn works at Porter Barn Wood, a local reclaimed wood company, designing, building and finishing furniture (clearly hes contributed a lot to their home too!), and Maggie is employed at Arizona State University. Bjorns touches throughout the house come in the form of the raw and finished wood used to accentuate and fuse together some of their favorite spaces, while Maggies contributions are the various ethnic pieces throughout the apartment that each have a unique history and story. While their styles may be vastly different, theyve still been able to create an eclectic yet comfortable home. They both love supporting local businesses, so items found close to home also pull everything together. Many thanks to Bjorn and Maggie for opening your home to us, and to Raya for the photos (you can see Rayas home here)! ?Anne Image above: Bjorn?s surprise wall came to be a year ago as he was experimenting with colors and paints. It paired nicely with the teak bedroom furniture in the textile rug and African throw.  The Tibetan wind chime hangs above the bed to create peaceful rest, the screen from Indonesia is made from ikat fabric, and the large copper plate is from east India. Image above: Floating reclaimed beam desk made from Bjorn?s wood stash.  This particular piece was aged for 3 years (to Maggie?s dismay!) at the casa before Bjorn found its purpose.  It has a clear Briwax finish that accentuates the weathered personality of the beam.  The Pottery Barn scone illuminates the Dunn Edwards, Turtle Lake green colored wall.  Raya loves climbing on the canvas covered African folk stools.
