Be fun! I don’t like homes or rooms that don’t have a sense of humor or have some sense of whimsy or a personality. Your home should reflect who you are, and what you love. I would never have something in my home because it’s the thing to have. I have to love it and it needs some connection to me.

I always wanted to be an actor, but I always loved design, and growing up in New Orleans there was such great style, great architecture. I would decorate my little apartment in New York over and over again, because it only had a couple of rooms. And I did it for friends and family on the side just for fun.
I grew up in a very celebratory town. We celebrate everything, from life to death and everything in between. So a lot of dramatics come into my aesthetic. And I’m an actor, so that adds more to the dramatic – I don’t mean over-the-top. The main thing is never to be boring.
I think in your home, you should only use colors that you look good in. It’s a little self-serving but think if it as you’re on a stage. Not with any pressure, but you want to showcase yourself.
I firmly believe that life is an ‘and’ proposition and not an ‘or’ one. If you really love something, you just have to try it. The worse that can happen is that you’ll be told ‘no.’

My family’s business was actually an amusement park in New Orleans. My grandfather had started that, and my grandmother was a dance maven in New Orleans. It was just the theatricality and the Mardi Gras and the pageantry that I fell in love with at an early age.
I think living my happy, open life and showing young gay kids you can be successful, you can have love in your life, you can be a contributing member of society and you can be respected – I think that’s it.
