When Domino featured the home of Ruthie Sommers protégé Krista Ewart in its June/July ’07 issue, I absolutely loved the place. Filled with lots of color, personalized vintage finds and kitschy details like a ceramic Afghan hound sculpture and a collection of stylish vintage fashion illustrations, the place had tons of charm. I was really excited to see her home featured again, this time on a new episode of HGTV’s Small Space Big Style which aired a recently. It was cool to see the place from a different perspective and I really enjoyed hearing about Krista’s approach to designing the space in her own words. SSBS provided a much more comprehensive look at her home than the Domino feature and the cameras captured so many details that just don’t translate in a still photograph. One element which wasn’t really visible in Domino are the two hot pink tufted chairs in her living room. These fun chairs really brightened up the space and I absolutely loved them. I collect seashells whenever I travel to beach destinations so I was also really drawn to Krista’s own collection of seashells which were seen piled up in a giant shell atop a pedestal in her living room as well as grouped together in a shelving nook in her kitchen. I found a clip of the segment on YouTube so in case you missed it, I thought you might like to watch it here. Enjoy!
