“I was at first drawn to the exceptional green exterior,” says Candice Molayem, clothes designer and operator of Animal Crackers. “I had also found shots of the inside of when the earlier owner lived there, and I loved her 1970s-style of decorating. The tall, slanted ceilings in the upstairs and the stroll-in closet were being massive draws, but actually from the minute I stepped inside, I envisioned myself residing there.”

For the earlier 10 several years or so, I have also been very into retrofuturism. Every thing from the 1970s feels like magic—the shades, shapes, and designs all talk to me.”

For a wider charm, the interior had been painted entirely white when it was set on the market place, but with Candice moving in, she produced absolutely sure to paint every single wall in the area. And when she usually means each and every wall, she indicates each individual wall received colour. The residing area grew to become cobalt blue, the bedroom turned brilliant orange, the loft turned neon eco-friendly and was stuffed with neon green clothes and home furnishings. —Zoë Sessums
