Welcome to What’s Your Style, where we put the focus on style influencers whose personal and home style make us giddy with ideas and design inspiration. First up Pap Shirock, a multi-hyphened actor-model-yoga teacher whose Los Angeles home has an edited, pared back and slightly Seventies vibe that matches up perfectly with her vintage-y fashion sense.

The International Orange scooter is not Shirock's. "But comes in handy as a prop!" she says.

Flea Market Find

Flea Market Find

Flea markets—like the famous Rose Bowl flea market in Los Angeles—are a big source for one-of-a-kind style finds. "Found these at a flea market in Venice last year," says Shirock. "Love how unique they are, kind of cowboy boots/skates."

Unconventional Jewelry Stand

Unconventional Jewelry Stand

Shirock found this skull stand at a garage sale. It's a "great way to keep jewelry organized without having it tucked away in drawers," she says.

Favorite Books

"I read a lot and am always hitting up used book stores to expand my collection," says Shirock. "Growing up my family had a rule that there was always enough money for music lessons and any book we wanted. I still don't really limit myself when it comes to buying books."

Seventies Style

Seventies Style

Shirock's Los Angeles home is full of earthy browns and organic natural elements like dried flowers and macrame that give the space a very Seventies feel. "I've always spent a lot of time outdoors and prefer the natural to the artificial," says Shirock. "I'm also a big fan of the Seventies, probably my favorite decade," she admits.

Hats as Art

Make a favorite fashion accessory into decor, as seen in this clever way of storing hats in Pap Shirock's Los Angeles home. "Hanging them on the wall was just a way to try to keep them from being crushed, but I do like the way it looks."

Minimalist Style

Minimalist Style

We love Shirock's choice here, to go with an on-trend Edison bulb rather than a shade to pair with this retro sconce. "The older I get, the more minimalist I become," says Shirock. "You just realize there is less and less that you actually need. And that most of the things you need aren't things at all."
