Ed Ruscha, The Act of Letting a Person Into Your Home, 1983, The Emily Fisher Landau Collection

This piece reminded me (in stirring, glowing waves of oil paint) what a gift it is to extend an invitation and be welcomed into a home. We chat virtually, work and dwell remotely and spend most days staring at blinking screens. Simple human connection is somehow, well, less simple. But, in the more analog space of a home over coffee or candlelight, we are afforded the luxury to kick shoes off, sink into a couch and reveal our true selves.

By exploring updated etiquette, comforting places to wander and be a guest, and thoughtful tokens to make or pick up for those who host us, Good House Guest hopes that we can reconnect and feel a bit more at home, together.
