When he wanders through shops, Hancock likes to be pleasantly surprised by items that eventually will find a spot on his walls, bookshelves and elsewhere in his home.
“I wanted a curated collection of things purchased at different times at different places,” he said. “I wanted each piece to be a memory of someplace I went or some time in my life.”

Favorite architectural elements: The built-in bookshelves he created. "I read a ton. That's what I do for fun, is read," he said.
Interior design styles: Industrial and eclectic
Favorite interior design elements: His kitchen table by Christopher Bailey of Industrial Chic Loft, which Hancock said can seat 12 to 15 people. "I did not want a formal dining room," he said. "It's one of a kind and fits the space perfectly."

Decor tip: Don't wait if an antique speaks to you. After failing to purchase an old safe 10 years ago, he buys an antique item as soon as he thinks it will fit in his house. "Although I am running out of space," he said. "That is my problem."
