Each decoration, picture and painting at this Earthy abode has a story. The family loves to collect things from its travels. When they aren’t traveling, the family fills its home with unique finds from flea markets and estate sales.

Check out our story online to see how all these eclectic pieces come together. (Photo by Danny Fulgencio)
