Though she still spends most of her time in Tennessee, where she recently put her farm on the market, Crow has kept this place in the city since 1998. She's outfitted it with salvaged signs and other goodies collected from junk shops and yard sales over the years. I love the mix of urban, industrial design and vintage flair. I'm particularly fond of the kitchen, which is a far cry from the aquarium-outfitted eating area in her Tennessee home.
Her dishware is a hodgepodge of mismatched plates and Starbucks coffee mugs; and she still uses a circa-1950s O’Keefe & Merritt stove that she bought for her first apartment in St. Louis, back when she was a schoolteacher. "It goes wherever I go," she says, patting it fondly. "It’s built like a Buick."
