Photography by Morgan Satterfield
Morgan Satterfield for those that don’t know is the marvellous mind behind the Brick House blog which we’ve enjoyed seen develop over the years, she certainly is one talented and dedicated lady in my eyes. Our internet travels over to her page are never disappointing and are always packed full of delightful design inspired objects and spaces, some of which I’ve decided to showcase here today. I don’t know how we haven’t featured any of her photography previously but I’m eradicating this now after visiting the collection on her personal page which I gather has been taken around her home.
Known by many as the queen of thrifting, Morgan has gained many admirers through her ability to find things on a shoestring budget, like the Josef Albers artwork in the right-hand corner of the image below, for a lowly four dollars ninety nine. If this wasn’t impressive enough she’s often known to make do and mend her finds, improving their aesthetic and in turn kitting out her home in some fantastically individual items inspired by the mid-century modern era.
I remember reading in a previous guest post by the Californian based creative that she rarely breaches the 100 dollar threshold on each item she buys, which I’m sure is all the inspiration you need if you’ve just brought your first home. It just makes you realise that if you box a little clever from time to time you can reap the rewards in the long run, this interior is spectacular and all on a realistic budget for most.
If you don’t follow her already you really should consider doing so, always entertaining and a big inspiration to those of us who want to fill our homes with well designed objects that have tons of character.
