My aunt and uncle amaze me with their design skills and aesthetic. Every time I go over to their house I can’t shut up about how gorgeous everything looks and I’m transported. Tucson is not really a city known to architecturally inspire…I mean I’m sure there are some historical buildings here and there with a good story behind them but it’s not like Los Angeles or San Francisco where almost every residential street has some quintessential vintage charm and history.
Don’t get me wrong I love Tucson for so many other reasons. But Tucson is Tucson and as a person who gets visually aroused, for the most part Tucson makes me feel meh. My point with all this blabbering is that my aunt decorated her home in such a way that you feel like you’re in Europe. She curated and cherry-picked her inspirations and accuracies about how things instinctively work, and crafted a home that is everything.
A short and boring yet insightful conversation about how I don’t care what things are technically called I just love them full-heartedly.
Me: “I love your house tia, it’s like Spanish style inspired.”
My aunt Josie: “No no honey it’s Tuscan.”
Me: “But it’s Spanish-style like, no?”
My aunt Josie: “No, it’s like in Italy, out in the country. Tuscan.”
Me: “Ohhh…Tuscan? Okay. Well whatever it is, I’m into it.”
So let me give you a digital tour of the beauty that is my aunts house (mainly her backyard because that’s my favorite part of the whole house), are you ready?
Let’s MTV Cribs.
