Last week, I traveled to Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco, to tour the home of designer Heddie Chu. Half of design and architecture firm NC2 Studio, which she founded with her partner Russ Naylor, Heddie is also the force behind Emerald Fish. This online decor and jewelry gift shop features beautiful objects, many of which are Fair Trade or one-of-a-kind, which Heddie carefully selects from all over the world. Heddie is truly a world citizen with an eye for beauty. Born in Korea, she has lived in Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Paris, and London, though she now happily calls Mill Valley home. When I asked her what she loves most about her home and the way she has furnished it, she said, "It reflects Russ and me — our personalities and our travel memories buying the objects, but my favorite thing is the view of the mountains so I can meditate every morning." Take the tour to see that gorgeous view, as well as all of the beautiful corners of Heddie's home.
