Jonathan: “It’s important that your home is a reflection of your personality. My home has inspirations from all of my travels. I hate it when I walk into a house and you can’t tell who lives there, or everything seems so generic and boring… The home should be a collection of a person’s interests.”

Drew: “Have some sort of a theme to the space, but that doesn’t mean that everything has to look the same.”
