Inside a Travel Photographer’s Colorful and Eclectic Deep Ellum Loft

Korena Bolding Sinnett's home evolves with every new passport stamp.

A visit to someone’s home can prove extremely revealing. How we live in our most personal of spaces sheds light on more than just tastes and styles, but about who we are and what we value. In their various professional pursuits, the five people and families featured in these pages all exhibit an uncanny eye for style—so we wanted to see how that translated at home. (They kindly obliged.) The results are varied, personal, and—unsurprisingly—beautiful.


The Deep Ellum loft that editorial art director and travel photographer Korena Bolding Sinnett shares with her architect husband, Ian, has become a supersized keepsake box of sorts. Between the polished concrete floors underfoot and the soaring 14-foot ceilings overhead lie myriad treasures the couple has collected during their frequent world travels. In one corner alone, pottery they picked up on trips to Kyoto and Mexico City shares space with seashells from Fiji, a photo Korena took in Peru, and a basket they brought back from Santa Fe.

“I like to have mementos of everywhere we’ve been as reminders,” Korena says. The mix makes for a colorful, eclectic home that evolves with every new passport stamp (and an Instagram feed that’s a must-follow in our book).
