1. Who was your favorite entry and why? (other than your own apt.)

"Hakarl and Jili's Bold Bright Moves' is a top notch competitor. They offset a challenging floor plan with bold but simple graphic colors and artwork. Like our apartment, this one is exceptionally small but doesn’t feel cramped. We love the concept of using bright and fresh colors in the living space, then contrasting with a crisp neutral palette in the bedroom. The clean lines of the furniture and orb-like lighting theme offer continuity between the spaces."

2. Why you should be the champ?

"At only 371sf, we make efficient use of every inch while managing to preserve an open and airy feel. Our aesthetic refinement has evolved over time as we pared down to rid our life of clutter. Special challenges are where we really shine, since we are restricted from making any physical modifications.

With just our imagination, paint, and some creative storage solutions, we created a place that is eminently livable. If chosen, we plan to buy a crib from DWRjax as we figure out how to make way for one more...to stay or not to stay, that is the question?!?!? "
