Welcome to The Crux, a design blog focused on exploring the hows and whys of trends and motifs in interior design. The crux at where aesthetic and function meet is design, and so function and practicality is of huge importance to us at The Crux.
The Crux has sought to share interesting design features with its readers through photo-editorial collaborations with interior design firms and home owners. Additionally, The Crux often explores topics that are relevant to contemporary society, seeking to streamline spaces for both function and style. Our editor, who enjoys more than a little DIY, also likes to toss the occasional fun (or outlandish) project into the mix, and is often aided by her wild preschoolers.
Jenny Schleich is the editor of The Crux. She is a long-time writer and photo journalist. . Though her life is sometimes a whirlwind of beautiful home photo shoots, blurred at the edges with a running reel of Pinterest projects, she tries to keep herself grounded in the real by eating too much venison and enjoying too many sunsets—a product of her circumstances.
I often share product shots from home décor stores, because these images speak to what I am writing about and I chose them myself. I link back to these businesses to credit them for their photography, and not as a form of paid promotion. I share my thoughts, my inspirations, my ideas and my work for public use, because it is a joy to do so.
