“Our favorite thing about our home is that it is filled with all the things we’ve collected on our adventures!”
Design*Sponge recently featured the quirky and creative Queen Anne Victorian home of touring musicians Darbie Nowatka and Justin Rice. When the duo is not touring with their band Bishop Allen, Justin writes and Darbie works as a graphic designer and makes jewellery and paper goods for her shop, Field Guide Design. Their home in Kingston, New York is filled with art, books, vinyl records, quirky collectables and vintage finds.
In response to the question “What I love most about my home is…” their answer had to be all the cherished curated items that they have collected during their travels (and adventures).
Be sure to pop over to Design*Sponge to check out the tour of the couple’s home. They have the coolest, most creative and enviable attic!
Tell me, what do you love most about your home?
“Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle.”
Jon Acuff said comparison is poison.
Something to remember and take to heart the next time you feel disheartened and frustrated about you current circumstances.
So often we look at another’s success and can’t help but compare our walk to theirs. The truth, as Matt Cheuvront of Life Without Pants points out, is…
“Wherever you are in life with whatever you’re doing – you’re going to be ahead of some and behind others. That’s okay. Own where you are. Take time to embrace and celebrate that. Continue moving forward.
And never compare your beginning to someone else’s middle.”
