- What do you love about your bedroom?:
- I love how my bedroom seems to have emerged out of my paternal grandfather’s landscape paintings. I have four of them hanging in my bedroom, depicting scenes in Iowa, Vermont, the Virgin Islands, and Puget Sound. Each painting features water and wood, so it seemed natural to include watery and woodsy elements in my room. Above my bed hangs a photograph taken in the lake in Iceland that was formed between the Atlantic and European continental plates. I had the wood-print curtains made of fabric from Ikea. I’m surrounded by pictures of my kids, my DVD collection is close at hand, and I can lay back in bed zoning out to the ficus that gazes longingly at the trees outside my window. I feel simultaneously energized and relaxed in my room, the place where I most enjoy thinking about my place in the world.
