The Essentials

Décor Advice: “If it’s something you really like, it’s probably going to work in your home. It’s a reflection of you and that’s what pulls the look of a space together.”

Home Style: “I’m a minimalist. I like furnishings that are modern and also a little retro and fun.”

Words to Live By: “Get what you love, but don’t get too much of it. Don’t overdo.”
