From the founders of General Store, Abode is a collection of Serena Mitnik-Miller and Mason St. Peter's effortlessly cool, quintessentially California interiors, and a look at how to re-create that style anywhere. 

The yearning for a life of pared-down purity has built to a roar, and Serena Mitnik-Miller and Mason St. Peter—the husband-and-wife owners of General Store, one of California’s most talked-about shops—are at the forefront. In Abode: Thoughtful Living with Less, these tastemakers make a graceful case for living better no matter your budget or abilities, guiding you to create a space this is simple and true. Their time-tested methods create interiors that maximize openness, strip a building back to its bones, and amplify natural light, evoking unpretentious tranquility. The blueprint for their signature aesthetic is all here: the embrace of elemental materials, curation of handcrafted objects, and collection of furnishings from eras when craftsmanship was king. This edit of Mitnik-Miller and St. Peter’s greatest collaborations will take you through their breathtaking rooms, masterpieces of warm minimalism. Abode is a glimpse into the couple’s process and a guide to manifesting your own beautiful interiors.

    Beautiful book, interesting writing and tips. I think the title is not quite right though- the part of thoughtful living with less. I actually don’t think that’s what the book is about, but maybe ...
