What I Love About My Small Home:
I’ve been in this apartment for less than a year after living in various San Francisco Victorians for over a decade. Although I love the charm and character of old apartments, I really wanted to live in a modern space again. What attracted me to this apartment was the “quality” of the space; it’s basically a series of right angles with big windows. The simplicity of crisp white walls with light-colored wood floors allows the focus to be on the furniture, which I’ve kept minimal and neutral in palette. Being a photographer, I also love the amount of light and wall space which has given me the freedom to increase the scale of my work. Most of all, I love the balance and juxtaposition I’ve achieved between modern and vintage, shiny and matte, textures of fabric, simple shapes and natural materials. Even though the space has a definite design push to it, it doesn’t feel fussy or unapproachable. In fact, it’s quite comfortable and livable!
