What would Courtney Barton consider the oddest item in her old bungalow at the corner of Melwood and Julian?
Hands down, the horse leg! People are freaked by it. And when they find [out it's] real, they really cringe. I couldn’t help but add fuel to the fire, so I hung a John Derian plate above the leg that has a picture of a horse’s head on it. That little area of the den makes me laugh.
Then there’s that guinea pig genetics poster. Those pieces and more are featured in the latest issue of online-ish magazine Refueled, an “alt-country style and design” journal. Photographer Cheryl Schulke shot the design blogger’s Norhill Historic District home back in February, not long before Barton and her husband held a notable garage sale, packed up just a few of their worldly possessions, and decamped to Kuala Lumpur.
A few more scenes from the Refueled shoot, including a few pics that didn’t make the mag:
