As founder and editor of Cereal , a magazine devoted to travel and style, Rosa Park has the enviable task of flying around the world, visiting and researching cities to share with her readers. Park, a lifelong traveler and magazine lover with a background in fashion and beauty marketing, launched Cereal in 2012 with her partner, creative director Rich Stapleton, who has an engineering background. The magazine's look strongly reflects the couple's keenly honed personal style; Park and Stapleton personally visit every location before deciding how the story should unfold in Cereal.   Even the most inveterate explorers need a place to relax and recharge, however. Park recently moved from Bristol, England, to a flat in Bath close to The Royal Crescent . (Cereal's offices are just a short train ride away in Bristol.) It's here that, between expeditions, she's made a home that feels very much like the pages of the magazine brought to life.  Photography by Rich Stapleton. Above: A view of Bath's iconic architecture (of Bath stone) looking down the street from Park's flat toward the Royal Crescent. Above: Park's gray-painted front door. Above: In the living room, Park adheres to a black, gray, and white palette. The pair of  Oslo Chairs by Muuto are her favorite pieces—they're surprisingly comfortable, she says. The light is a George Nelson Saucer Pendant . In lieu of shades, the windows have shutters. Considering your own? See Remodeling 101: Interior Shutters . Above: Park's meticulously displayed collection of coffee table books includes monographs on the work of Agnes Martin and Fan Ho, and Phaidon's book about concrete in design. Above: A photo by Stapleton (inspired by Hiroshi Sugimoto ) rests on the mantel. Stapleton is responsible for much of the photography in Cereal, as well as the magazine's design. Above: The  Anglepoise Lamp —a UK classic (and Remodelista favorite) was invented in Bath. Read about the history of the design in the Remodelista book , where Megan Wilson describes it as "a lamp that maintains great poise at rakish angles." Above: The gray and white kitchen overlooks a golf course; Park says the light is especially memorable at sunrise. She looks forward to long breakfasts on weekends. Above L: In a high/low corner, a Hans Wegner Wishbone Chair draped with an Icelandic sheepskin is paired with an Ikea Ranarp reading lamp (Park first spotted the light on Instagram). Above R: Park arranges her favorite ceramics, cookbooks, and kitchen items, all in a muted palette, on her bookshelves. Above: The bedroom is a soothing mix of calm neutrals. Above L: Office items are smartly stored in  Desktop Boxes  by Danish company Hay. Above R: Park's minimalist workspace contains little more than the essentials: desk, chair, lamp (another Anglepoise ), and laptop. Above L: A bamboo bath tray. Above R: A Skagerak bamboo floor mat from Denmark, purchased at a shop in Bath—to source your own, see  10 Easy Pieces: Wooden Bath Mats .
