What I Love About My Small Home:
Generous bay windows that let in the sun with a view of lush greenery, the local tropical bird population, and an occasional small fruit bat at night, while I curl up with a book and hot chocolate. My tiny, but functional, kitchen(ette) which is easy to clean up, but has the capacity to handle (modestly-sized) dinner parties. And the sunken marble bath - a touch of real luxury - that cleverly makes full use of the limited bathroom space, and lets me soak the stress away after a long day.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
The biggest challenge was to make my apartment become all the things that a full-sized house is: a work space, a trove for collected treasures, a welcoming den for friends and family who drop in often, but most importantly a place of rest and rejuvenation. All that, while also working within very real spatial limits.

I had to be really disciplined about what entered my house - though I have a voracious appetite for acquiring all sorts of knick-knacks. Everything, from the ceiling lamp to the pitcher, was scrutinised on its form (simplicity over complexity), durability (hardwearing over fragile), functionality, and cost.
