What is the advantage of SMALL? I like the idea that I'm taking up less space on the planet. I get to surround myself with only things that are beautiful or useful and I don't buy unnecessary stuff...

What is the advantage of SMALL? CONT'D

For me, one of the keys to happiness is owning less possessions; but I'm not willing to give up all worldly comforts. Living in a small space is my solution for owning less without having to move to a commune.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

Since interior design trends follows fashion trends I like to read fashion magazines to see what's current. I then try to translate those looks into my home. Vogue and Elle are always cutting edge.

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

I love the bed nook. My one hesitation for living in a studio was that feeling like your bed is in the living room. Putting my bed in the walk-in closet allows me to comfortably live in a small apartment and have the sleeping area feel like it's in a different space.
