Pops of color and elements of surprise delight visitors at every turn in Natalie's apartment. Each piece fits seamlessly together in a jigsaw of authenticity and audacity.
Whimsical art---from her niece's paintings on the fridge to a framed portrait of the invisible man---draw viewers in and keep them smiling. There is a story behind each piece, whether it is the antique portrait of a young girl that just 'spoke' to Natalie or the rarely-seen photograph of Picasso at the races.
Beyond the two-dimensional, an eclectic assembly of elements enliven the small one-bedroom and make it bigger-than-life. Several pieces nod to Natalie's Mexican heritage or home state of California. Most importantly, the whole collection echoes her originality, playfulness and joie de vivre.
