6 THINGS WITH JORDAN PERRY
6 Things with Jordan Perry Founder of Guest House
Based in San Francisco, Jordan is the founder of Guest House, a collection of vintage furniture and home goods that you definitely want first dibs on. Guest House was born out of a love for furniture and curating individual spaces. I first met Jordan when I visited the Guest House Studio for an afternoon of vintage shopping in collaboration with Dendwell. Jordan has an incredibly curated eye for the endless amounts of vintage she sources. When I asked her what was next for her business, it turns out she has plenty more up her sleeve. Jordan recently announced a sneak peek into Housette Market, a new market hosting Bay Area small businesses, creatives and vintage curators. This will be an absolute game changer for our Bay Area community and I'm looking forward to seeing it all unravel.
1. What started it all for you?
2. What drives your creative spark?
3. Most treasured home decor item?
Without a doubt I'd have to say the bar in our living room. I find vintage furniture for a living and haven’t seen anything like it before. Its size alone calls for your attention when you're in the room. The layout of our living room is set up for long nights of hosting friends and the bar serves as the centerpiece to conversations and cocktails.
4. What’s the best advice you've ever received?
Have a few dreams because one will come true and then there will come a moment when you need to figure out something else to do.
5. It's 5 o'clock at home. What would you be pouring?
I’m a cocktail girl, so it’s either a lemon drop or espresso martini. If my personal bartner (my boyfriend) isn’t home, then I’m drinking any sauvignon blanc.
6. What are your favorite 6 accounts that you follow for inspiration?

"I’m inspired by the pieces that I find. Every day is a constant battle of looking for something I didn’t know I wanted to find. Once I’ve found the right piece, the creativity starts to flow." -Jordan Perry
