What is the advantage of SMALL? Small forces editing. And editing, I find, is the most difficult yet most satisfying work. I like to see a conversation emerge between pieces in a room as each form, each texture, each wash or pool of light creates a dynamic play - a small space especially encourages this.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

I have many sources but no single favorite -- elements come from Pier 1, Ikea, thrift stores, my mom's house's overflow, Target; anywhere I find a piece I like.

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

My pair of red velvet arm chairs purchased at the Salvation Army.
