What is the advantage of SMALL? There are several advantages to living in a small space. I think the most important is that it's great living in only as much space as you need...

What is the advantage of SMALL? CONT'D

Having lived in larger spaces you tend to not make the best use of your space and some rooms often go unused or become storage rooms. In a small space this is not an option. You have to maximize every inch of space you have. I love my small space and wouldn't dream of living any other way!

What's your favorite resource for your home?

Like most members of this site my favorite resources are Apartment Therapy, Dwell, CB2, IKEA, DWR and local vintage stores. Also, my TV practically is always tuned to HGTV and my DVR is filled with episodes of my favorite TV show, Small Space Big Style.

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?

My favorite element is my dining room table. It was designed in 1966 for Artemide by Vico Magistretti. I found the Artemide Stadio 120 at a local vintage store and managed to buy it for 1/2 of what the owner was asking. Not known for my bargaining skills this was quite a coup and gives me great satisfaction.
