How to Make a House Feel Like Home, According to the Founders of Canyon Coffee

For anyone with a good coffee habit, the key word is ritual. Ally Walsh and Casey Wojtalewicz, partners and co-founders of Canyon Coffee in Southern California, see the rituals that surround coffee as a way to connect with each other, and they say these processes have a way “to add beauty and warmth to everyday life”. Of course, like any habit, a measured approach is best.

Now with their first child, Ally and Casey are settling into a new home, and decorating has been an equally deliberate process. “We prefer to let furniture and special pieces come to us,” they say. But until the universe provides it, the elements below didn’t hesitate to roll the ball to a warm and welcoming home filled with intentions.
