KEEP IT CLEAN "Traditionally, the [condo] buildings were not so modern. Now, we're fortunately getting, I think, some exciting new modern buildings, so allow some of the furniture to be modern and clean. I like to make my homes very beautiful, but I also like to make them very livable: a place where people can go swimming and feel like they can come back in and sit on the couch."
