It’s no surprise the amount of thought and care Angelica puts into creating her home space, considering her own unique upbringing. Raised by her grandparents, she was always surrounded by her grandmother’s indoor plants, her grandfather’s woodworking projects, and an atmosphere of artistry and hard work. She was raised eating fruits and vegetables her grandma grew in the garden, at a dining table grandpa built with his own hands. Seeing how much time and effort that grandpa put into every single object he made, Angelica developed an early appreciation for that level of artistry, passion, and dedication and decided her home will always reflect those values.
But it wasn’t just the labor of it all that sparked Angelica’s infatuation with a handcrafted lifestyle. It was the care and attention her grandmother put into their home, the ambient love she would give to her many indoor and outdoor plants, which in return would breathe life into each space they occupied. Most notably a 30-something-year-old philodendron that was passed down to Marilyn from her own mother, which still trails down the dining room cabinet that Roy built.
