Final questions for Hilary:

What is your favorite home store?

Internet curbside shopping: websites such as Freecycle or Craigslist that encourage the sharing, bartering and re-using of resources.

What is your secret?

My secret has to do with understanding that most of the world lives with much less than I do, and that possessions weigh me down. Creating an environment that pleases my designer’s eye with only a few choice objects has been a refreshing exercise. I feel clear and relaxed in this apartment, and visitors can peek at objects which tell a unique story.
