HollisterHovey and Porter Hovey are two talented sisters with an eye for interior design. Numerous publications have fallen in love with the Hovey's personal home, including The Wall Street Journal, Refinery29, and The New York Times, which noted their eclectic mix of "apothecary cabinets, fencing masks and pith helmets, stacks of antique luggage and a taxidermy collection that would make Teddy Roosevelt proud." Also, you might've spotted Porter on Mad Men, after she won a photography contest with Banana Republic by taking a vintage shot dressed in the style of the show.
