I’ve always adored the hipster aesthetic. If I could make myself care a whit about what I looked like or, you know, design, I’d be a hipster. I’m all over it. Natural wood, groovy dudes with tattoos, record players, I think all that stuff is gravy on the meatloaf of awesome. My sister and her husband are hipsters, but they’re the rare breed of Effortlessus Hipsteradium. It’s just what they gravitate to and they make it seem weightless and natural.
This is them at their wedding:
Look at them! It’s like they hopped out of a fairy tale!
It’s all on a shoestring budget, going to resale shops, or making it themselves, finding the thing that fits their lives.
This is their front door. They fabric painted the burgundy seat themselves.
Maps and Disney movies.
Pictures in a jar of oil, dried flowery things, old books. It’s like they do all the rocking things I see on Pinterest and they do it well. (Instead of making cool stuff I muck about on the computer.)
Blankets for if you get chilly while you’re sitting in the chairs.
Awesome suitcases and trunks. You could probably even put the little suitcase in the bigger one, and the bigger one in the trunk, like nesting dolls or sharks.
COORDINATES ON A BURLAP PILLOW! She did the screen herself, and they also do cool things like making lotion bars, salt scrubs, pickling, she cooks all the time like an actual grownup.
Pictures on aged wood held on with clothespins.
Their pillow looks all watercolory.
This is from when Sherlock Holmes came to visit. Just kidding!!! It’s always there, for when you need to see small things!
There we go! This is is my very favorite part of their whole house. Their pills are in little glass jars. Showing off those bright colors, basically it’s a little medical art installation.
They support local artists. These are postcards that they framed, of their city! Hipsteronia, or as the rest of the world knows it: Denton.
They have one of those coffee hourglasses (they have a proper name, I’m sure), where you pour the hot water through and the coffee blooms and it does the drippy thing.
Look at their chill bed! It’s made of wood! Look at that blue contraption with wheels! You could put a baby in there!
Their apartment is my favorite place in the world. It’s like stepping into a cottage somewhere far away. It’s hard to believe that we’re made of the same genetic material. I’m a writer, and she’s clearly a wizard.
