What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? What I really love about my home is the mod vibe I feel when I'm relaxing in my living room. It's not quite mid-century and it's not quite modern but it feels just right, especially with filled with friends klatching and sipping on cool cocktails.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The biggest challenge I faced was creating something unique in a space that looked like every other plain jane apartment in LA. Using bold, contrasting colors with paint, wallpaper and furnishings and replacing some of the lighting with vintage fixtures I was able to disguise much of the ordinary nature of the apartment. I primarily sourced from vintage shops, family heirlooms, my travels and of course, necessary evil Ikea.
