Final questions for Brandon:

What is your favorite home store?

What is your secret?

Do what you love and you’ll love what you do. I think that’s the secret that one should apply to everything in their life.

If you keep things simple by only acquiring objects/furniture that fulfill a need and that you find beautiful and have meaning to you, then you will always love your space. Each piece in the apartment fills a need, but there is a unique story with how each was acquired.

Most see just an apartment with nice things, but I can look at the apartment and see a small history of my life. And that is the secret I love about it. Brandon
