How many people do you know who aren't afraid to be themselves? I mean people who really, truly aren't afraid to embrace who they are and what they love. They're not concerned about who's watching or the status quo, they're just always so them. Meet Jane and Kody. They are those people. Fun, happy, unique and creative. These two know how to make a home, even when living in a small apartment. It's the perfect blend of items they love, places they've been, and things they've made. Every room is an expression of their style and what they think makes life beautiful. It's just so them.
Jane made the paper wheels above the sofa after seeing some she loved at Paper Source! She's always been great at visualizing things in 3D and creating with her hands.
When Jane and Kody were dating, Kody traveled to Paris. He asked Jane if there was anything she'd like him to bring home for her. At the time, Jane wasn't quite sure where things were going in the relationship or if they would even continue dating once he was home. She told him she only wanted something from Paris if it was authentic Chanel. Kody gladly obliged...until he visited the Chanel store! He quickly realized "authentic Chanel" was most likely out of his budget, but he was determined to not return home empty handed. Instead he bought Jane the beautifully framed print shown above. It's a lovely black and white photo of Coco Chanel herself. Clever, thoughtful, and authentic indeed!
Kody loves rhinos, Jane loves elephants. I love seeing them thoughtfully placed throughout their home. They always spark a smile and tell a story in their own little way.
Jane + Kody. What's not to love? Their apartment shows so much spunk and personality, in the very best way. When it comes to creating a home, these two know how to make it their very own. I think the most successful spaces reflect the people inside, the ones that leave you thinking "it's just so them!"
Thanks for sharing your home with me, Jane and Kody! What a wonderful place to be.
