A vegan who is passionate about animal rights and has the books of ethicist Pete Singer on her bedside table,

Nichols keeps embellishments to a minimum, preferring ikebana

, sculptural Japanese flower arrangements that straddle the line between art and gardening.

It is perhaps not surprising that the couple’s great inspirations include Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas,

with its select minimalist art in a barren landscape, and Walter De Maria’s Lightning Field,

the monolithic 1977 land-art project consisting of 400 stainless steel poles in the high desert of New Mexico.

The couple first visited both sites on road trips nearly 15 years ago, but the imagery and the intention have stayed with them, continuing to inform the way they see their home—and live in it.

“The modernity, the simplicity, the idea of a mindful oasis of beauty—that is something you internalize,” she says.

“It changes you forever.”

Nichols doesn’t have to go far for her own small slice of uninterrupted serenity:

An entire wall of sliding wood-framed doors opens to a deck that is nearly the size of the house, and a tranquil pool amid the aloes and succulents.

“It’s sometimes hard to leave here to take the long ride downtown, where my studio is,” she says.

“You look out, and what you see is perfect. Not perfect in the way some people think of the word, but perfect to me.”
