Made by Hand

A creative homeowner builds and styles a rustic-meetsindustrial escape that’s full of flea-market finds.
RELAXED. COMFY. Welcomed. This is how Sandra hopes her guests feel when they step into her living room for the first time. The space combines architectural marvels—like her windows trimmed in reclaimed wood—with cozy elements, like her sofas covered in custom slipcovers made from canvas painter’s drop cloths. “It’s a room that can be appreciated in a variety of ways,” Sandra says.

SOMETIMES YOU’RE BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE, even though it hasn’t yet taken shape. That’s exactly what Sandra Van Camp did, purchasing items for her home long before it was even built. “Items spoke to me, and I bought them along the way,” she says. Chippy screens, glass doors and salvaged wood finds all went into a storage unit, waiting for a place to call home. Sandra, who is currently a server but used to work in construction, built just that place in 2016: an 810-square-foot, single-level home on a plot of land on St. Simon’s Island, Georgia. She calls it Wabi-Sabi One (she also has a rental vacation property behind it that’s called Wabi-Sabi Two). The term wabi-sabi refers to the Japanese concept of beauty developed over time—and it couldn’t be more fitting.
