What is the advantage of SMALL? I love living in a small place because you can truly focus on what you want your place to look like. You aren't placing things somewhere just because you have the space. Instead, you are able to think long and hard about each element and where it should be placed. Everything has a reason for being where it is.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

Everything that inspires. Colors outside, art, magazines, DIY home websites. I base my design around elements that I find. I love going to antique shops and looking for that one item that will just be born again in our home. I rely upon tangible objects and imagination.

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?

The colors. I feel as if the colors we choose to paint on the walls really evoke happiness. You can't walk into my apartment and feel sad. It radiates with warmth and relaxation. I love coming home from a hard day at work and immersing myself in the feel of the room. The soft blue of the living room. The energizing orange of the kitchen. The relaxing gray of the bedroom. Every room I go in just feels good.
