What is the advantage of SMALL? I love that I do not have a mansion full of possessions that are purely decorative and are not a reflection of me and my lifestyle...

What's your favorite resource for your home?

Traveling the world and collecting many amazing artifacts. I started furnishing my apartment on a budget, and went to IKEA and found some amazing pieces made of solid oak. The wood grain has so much character, and gives beautiful warmth to my home.

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

My travel treasures I collect from all over the world. I love that my apartment tells a story all my own, each object is a memory of an amazing journey.
