What is the advantage of SMALL? I can only bring home things that are either very beautiful or very useful (or both).

What is the advantage of SMALL? CONT'D

As a result, each and every corner of my living space has become an expression of me.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

Vancouver's Chinatown, my father (he built all the cabinets in my home and installed the floor), Apartment Therapy, and, for inspiration, local retailers Inform Interiors and Koolhaus.

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

The large windows and high ceilings lend a sense of spaciousness and permit a lot of light to flow into and around the space. The large windows have also allowed for some fairly dramatic curtains, which are definitely one of the highlights of my home.
