Favorite resource:

My "Color Index" book. Absolutely indispensable when choosing color schemes that make sense.

What inspired you?

I started designing with just four pictures that I owned before moving into my apartment. I matched the warm, rich colors of those pictures in the bedroom but attempted to keep the living room light and airy for guests to feel invited.

The design needed to have a calmness that I could feel comfortable in for long periods of time. The major challenge was to provide lighting in this apartment that comes with no overhead fixtures. By using a multitude of sources and color temperatures the spaces receives ample light and movement at night.

Design Tip:

Choose a waterline for all of your wall hangings and stick with it. This will give consistency to your apartment and a flow that will be easy to understand.
