Michele Janezic, buyer, stylist, and manager of MILL Mercantile, has a unique eye for light, shape, and design that we’ve been admiring for a while. (Her popularity on Instagram is evidence that we’re not her only admirers.)
Michele’s style, understated and effortless, turns out to be the perfect foil for our intricately detailed Ornament clock in Birch. We asked her some questions below.
How do you start each day?
I have grown to love mornings the best and I’ve developed a ritual that involves making a cup of coffee first thing. I hand grind my beans (Sightglass) and do a drip pour over. There’s amazing morning light that pours into my living room and I bask in it for awhile. When the weather cooperates, I head into Glen Canyon for a morning walk and when I’m feeling particularly rested and inspired, I head over to Billy Goat Park to watch the sunrise. It’s the most magical meditative moment to me.
What do you like about this particular clock and how does it fit your style?
I love the neutral tones of the decorative facade. Its beautiful design fits well with the aesthetics of my style and home. I’m also particularly fond of the abstractness to tell its time.
In this digital age, what appeals to you about an analog clock like this?
I love having such an artful analog clock now in my house. I typically use my phone to check the time and there’s something particularly calming about this clock’s design as well as its function.
