What do you love about your bedroom?:
My bedroom is like a tiny jewel box. It's actually the biggest and brightest room in my very small apartment, and was a key selling point in an otherwise light challenged space. Many people advised against painting a small room dark blue, including my painter, and I almost chickened out. But it was the best decision I made...the bermuda blue walls play off the amazing New York City skyline outside my window. The room glows, and is both dazzling and calming at the same time.
What are your tips for creating a beautiful, healthy and organized bedroom?
The key to living in a small space is keeping everything in its place. I curate the things I love most to avoid clutter, and often rotate my art and collectibles rather than have everything on display at once. I also enjoy coming home to a beautifully made bed, so I never leave the house without doing so. I guess all those years of my mother insisting I clean my room paid off!
In modern homes, bedrooms have become more than just a place to sleep; they can be a retreat, a home office, a library, a relaxation zone. What are some ways you make the most of your bedroom?
My bedroom does double duty as my office. I sit at my desk in front of the picture window typing away on my laptop. Sometimes I get lost in the view and day dream about life in the city.
