If you follow San Francisco-based creative Lena Corwin on Instagram, you already know her home (which the family renovated over nearly 2 years), is the stuff of artsy, minimalist dreams. And—we have to break it to you—it exceeds expectations in the flesh. Thanks to the textile designer’s expert eye in finding the perfect unexpected hues and interesting shapes and lines, her Outer Sunset abode is one of our favorites we’ve featured yet. Of course, this profile isn’t just about the house (although clearly it’s a beautiful one), we’re also equally inspired by Lena’s multitude of creative pursuits (See Sun, Peace Towel, a couple books, etc.), her passion for raising her two boys (Eli, 7, and Abe, 3), and her commitment to activism in today’s trying times.

So lovely! Specific question—what are the floors in your bedroom, kitchen, playroom? They look like either Marmoleum or perhaps stone tile? I love how calm and neutral the are!

    hi megan,
    we have marmoleum in the kitchen (love it so much) and painted plywood in other parts of the house. we have wool carpet in our kid’s rooms.

So stoked to finally get to stickbeak in a proper home tour of Lena’s lovely place, rather than the tanatlizing glimpses on instagram ;) Dying to know how she limits the art on her walls.
