You might know Erika Christensen from her role as Julia Braverman Graham on Parenthood, or any of the amazing other roles she’s done. Case in point: Swimfan, Traffic, The Perfect Score, and just when you think she can’t get any cooler, she lends her voice to the hysterical Robot Chicken.
All that aside, Erika is down to earth and naturally gorgeous. She was so unbelievably kind and gracious, and most of all, she was really interesting and willing to share her favorite things with us.
Inventory is a project designed to feature creative and inspiring people who have an interesting story to tell. This series gives the readers an inside and intimate look at the lives of the subjects, through everyday objects that hold importance and have meaning.
For those of you who follow Erika, you know she’s an avid cyclist. Using the word “avid” is probably an understatement. Her bike was the first thing she wanted photographed.
Erika comes from a family of artists. Her brother gave her this piece, and it proudly hangs in her impressive collection of unique and personal art.
Her mother is also quite the artist. This is some of her work.
Her favorite tote is this Rapha shoulder bag. It goes everywhere with her, and is perfect for cycling.
Erika has a no-plastic-bottles rule, so these gorgeous glass bottles are a mainstay.
She started collecting Super 8s, and her mother recently gave her a projector- so be on the lookout for a fun film project in the future.
Cold-brewed coffee is a must.
Her favorite pair of shoes are Soludos. She says she has every design and wears them every day. Cute, casual and comfortable- what more could you want?
She’s a coffee nut, and loves her mocha pots.
Her favorite sunglasses.
A gifted porcelain tea cup from her grandmother.
