Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: I live by myself and work at CamelBak in Petaluma. Every time I walk into my apartment it provides me peace and a breath of fresh air. I love the stained glass hanging in the window, my record player, David Bowie print, and bookcase, which separates the living room and bedroom. It’s absolutely gorgeous.

As my brother stated the other day “Your home should be in a magazine.” I also love to host and although the kitchen is tiny, I love the light fixture in the kitchen (it is stained glass) and it is big enough for those to come over and be happy. Happiness is a huge part of the apartment and you can feel that as soon as you enter. I also love the big bay windows and hardwood floors, but who doesn’t love that in an apartment.

Any advice for creating a home you love? I think you should create something that comes truly from your soul. I think you can make any tiny space into something truly elegant, with control and ease.
