Where I live: I live in west Little Rock with my husband, Eric, and our two rescued dogs, Frank and Leia. Eric and I had our house built in the Forest Valley neighborhood in 2013.

Occupation: Yoga instructor, aesthetician and owner of The Floating Lotus Yoga Studio and Day Spa, which I founded in 2009. Eric designed the first logo for my business, which is how we met. We have been married since 2014. Eric owns Images, a graphic design and print shop.

My favorite space: Our bedroom.

Why: It's a space where I sleep (I love sleep!), meditate and practice Yoga in front of a sliding glass door. The glass door provides a peaceful view where I can see outside to our back deck and yard during my Yoga practice. Our bedroom faces east, and the morning sun is fabulous. The light is wonderful in this room. Plus, when there is a full moon, I love how its illumination bathes Eric and me while we sleep.

If I could make one change to improve the space, I would: Eric and I both like the order and balance of open spaces with minimal clutter, which we have achieved in this room. But Eric prefers neutral tones, while I love color. Hence, we have been very slow decorators. My only change would be to add colorful art and decor.
