In Cisco Pinedo’s house, knickknacks are few and far between, which results in each item gaining a sense of importance and meaning.
This makes the house feel peaceful and―by calling attention to the few well-edited pieces on display―also intensely personal. In this setting, even garden gnomes become art.
“I wanted open space without a lot of stuff,” he says. “I didn’t want the house to look busy.”
Except for a mix of items found while traveling and trolling flea markets, the living room is uncluttered. Favorite pieces include a wooden Burmese Buddha, European garden gnomes, and a Mexican santo.
“I love merging cultures in design,” Cisco says.
