What I Love About My Small Home:
Last year I rented this urban cottage in Brooklyn to be in the same neighborhood as my (grown) kids. Now they drop by all the time and it makes me very happy.

I love having two floors. For the downstairs I used bright colors to create a vibrant atmosphere, while the upstairs is very quiet and serene. The light throughout the house is strong and beautiful.

I had to start from scratch on a shoestring budget (I left my Manhattan apartment intact and put it to work as a guest rental), so my little cottage is filled with thrift shop and consignment store finds, hand-me-downs, and a few modestly priced new pieces. I did treat myself to a few special things for the living room, including the striped fold-down desk.
