Let’s travel and see some fresh inspiration with this amazing home. What a lovely home and inspiring story:
Brittney Borjeson , owner of Evoke, decided it was time to make a major change: for the next year and a half, she rented a tiny studio in a family-run hotel and traveled the country gathering native crafts, a collection that would eventually become the contents of her first shop.

Having spent the previous 13 years living in Boston and New York City, she was immediately smitten with the stunning Pacific seascape and easygoing attitudes of the local artisans. “I came for what was supposed to be a short vacation,” Borjeson jokes. ”And, two years later, I’m still here.”

Her home is located in a village with fewer than 4,000 residents just 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta a few miles from Mexico.  “Mexico is filled with so many beautiful things,” she explains. “But it’s very hard to find actual furniture here.” As a result, almost everything in Borjeson’s home, all-white abode is custom-made, either by herself or with the help of village craftsmen.
Totally in love. 

In the living room, cement platforms—common to the architecture of many Mexican homes—are covered with cushions to form a sectional sofa. The coffee table is made of two unfinished plywood crates stacked one on top of the other.
