Friday, May 30, 2008 me!

I don't know about you but after reading this month's Domino (oops, last month's now!) I have a little crush on actress Julianne Moore. This article about her decorating talent hit all my buttons.

She advocates smart design; nothing she chose had to be extravagantly expensive or seen everywhere to be worthy of being in her friend's home. She created a lovely and comfortable home that was remarkably affordable.

She sourced items from places such as IKEA, Crate & Barrel, Flor, and Benjamin Moore when she could have easily used DWR, George Smith, Knoll, or Bertazzoni-Italia, as other articles referenced in this issue did.

I say Yes! to more articles like this one influenced by a well-paid actress who doesn't have her head stuck in the clouds.

I've been looking at and falling in love with "tiny living" lately and found your blog through one of my searches. I would like to ask you if I could do a short interview, perhaps 5 or so questions and a picture or two of your choice, for some "Tiny Lifer" profiles I'm planning for my blog.

You can see the referencing post here if you'd like to see what I'm talking about.

Each profile is intended to give people who are living in conventionally sized homes (1500+ square feet) a look into what it's like to downsize, whether for ecological or financial reasons, or simply a desire to simplify their lives.

If you'd be interested, please email me at greenplantDOTblogATgmailDOTcom with the name of your blog and your square footage. I'm hoping to keep most of the profiles in the 1200 square foot or less range.

Thank you!
