While her house is the stuff minimalist dreams are made of, Los Angeles-based artist Emilie Halpern‘s life has been anything but utopian of late. Last year, the mother of a 6-year-old, Harold, lost her husband to suicide. Then, a month later, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Today, she opens up her Japanese-inspired abode and shares her story of love, loss, and life with us. With so many unexpected twists and turns in her path, the grace with which Emilie has handled her lot is truly inspiring. After reading her story, we’re sure you’ll feel the same.
