A New Point of View
I?n my Madison Avenue apartment, I found real balance through letting go. Letting go of a plan for the design and letting go of my ideas of what is furniture and what is art. I put this apartment together with pieces I love and couldn’t live without, period. I left myself open to respond to the space and the objects in it. And, I then I found many sources of inspiration… a Jimmy Choo shopping bag inspired the wall color, which balanced the metals that gave the room punch. I was moved by artists new to me, as well as those I have admired forever. If I saw something I liked, I did the work and either found a way to afford it or made it myself. Each piece was revealed through my eyes looking at the world without a master plan, from a new point of view.

“Life shrinks or
expands in proportion
to one’s courage.”
