Meeting Peter Dunham was one of the highlights of Kathryn M. Ireland’s Design Workshop. I have adored his textiles and design for ages and was excited to see his showroom. He was lovely.
I think it’s very interesting that he downsized. When I lived in Los Angeles, most of my peers in entertainment were all about getting to the next level. You had to have the right address, the right car, and even if your house was perfect, the minute you could afford to (or not) you would upgrade to a bigger, better, house.
In this month’s issue of HOUSE BEAUTIFUL, there is a great interview (and slideshow) with Peter. He talks about why he moved from a house that was 3,500 square-feet to an apartment that is only 550 square-feet.
Living in a tiny space forces you to edit. You cannot surround yourself with just “stuff.”
There is some fantastic design advice for small spaces in the article. You can read it HERE and check out more photos of his charming home.
