Sarah and Joseph Belknap of iamhome Where was your favorite place to live?
We love Chicago, it’s the most well rounded city we have lived in.

What’s your favorite room in your home?
The kitchen. We love to cook.

What are your interests outside of design?
We are practicing visual artists and love to cook, camp and play ping pong.

What are your sources of inspiration?
Color, science, humor and the cosmos.

What was/is your biggest indulgence?
Good food and cocktails.

What’s your favorite possession?
We have a small meteorite collection that is slowly growing into a big one.

What one item do you wish you owned?
We want a couch we haven’t had one in the past five years because we were rehabbing our living room. We have just finished the room but it is still couchless.

What is your personal decorating style?
Our home is pretty minimal it’s the complete opposite of our studio. We need a place to go to that is simple and peaceful.

Who are your design icons?
Coop Himmelblau and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

Form vs. function?
We think they should go hand in hand.

In your opinion, what is the best designed item of all time?
The telescope.

What do you drive?
We drive a black Nissan pickup truck we lovingly named Starbuck after Battlestar Galatica.

Do you have one low budget decorating tip?
Keep it simple and only decorate with the things you truly love.

What’s the best career advice you ever received? Ever gave?
We received it and we pass it down: have fun… experiment without restraint… and if you stop loving it, don’t do it anymore.
