Welcome Home is a series of interviews and photos from the team at Coyuchi. This week, Molly, our Marketing Content Associate, invites us into her home.
Q: Set the geographic scene: Where is your home?
Molly: San Francisco proper, up-up-and-away in the clouds, on a dead end dirt road, adjacent to twin peaks. The apartment sits on a clear perch that gets terrific views of the east, west, Golden Gate and bay bridges. With the occasional fog, artful avalanches spill through the valleys. It's magical.
Q: How do you describe the style and design of your home?
Molly: Gathered and alive. A guest once commented, "Everything in here begs to be outside." The earth is what makes me feel at home. From the indoor cactus garden to a concrete horse housing bits of moss: Rugged, muted, aberant and as organic as possible.

Q: What is your favorite room and why?
Molly: The deck. From morning coffee to evening dinners, this is where we spend most of our time. It is filled with ample odd shaped Kalanchoes, herbs, and seating, plus a humming bird feeder that gets plenty of traffic come summer.
Q: What influences your interior purchases?
Molly: Is it good for the spirit and how has time influenced it?
(Image below: My favorite book, "Touch The Earth," original print, handed down from my father. Aztec influence cotton/linen pillow from H.D. Buttercup.)
Q: What types/time periods of homes are you drawn to?
Molly: Wabi sabi and modern Scandinavian. Stone, clay, wood (preferably unfinished), sophistication, and proportion.

Q: Do you have a favorite interior designer or artist?
Molly: Axel Vervoordt. His work is impeccable, displaying simplicity and restraint.

Q: Do you have any Coyuchi product in your home?
Molly: Quite a bit. Rustic Linen blankets, air weight towels- and my favorite- Coyuchi down inserts (they are luxurious). I've also been wearing the Muslin Swaddling Blankets as an accessory. At first I thought only tangerine and charcoal, however the orchid has made its way into my wardrobe. (Below: Coyuchi Swaddling Blanket in tangerine and charcoal.)
