What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? Lots and lots of natural light — we have a ton of windows and it comes in from at least two directions in every room but one.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The windows also proved to be a challenge -- they are so abundant we don't have a lot of wall space for Erik's paintings and photographs. We love the way the windows frame views of our gardens and the play of light on clean white walls changes throughout the day. We also love the casual, elegant look of leaning artwork against the walls in an ever-changing display.
