Megan and David have a little apartment with big windows. And the natural light that pours in from those big windows is one of their favorite elements of the apartment (although a personal elevator is a close second!). Most of all, they try to keep their apartment minimal, homey and colorful.

One of the ways they keep their various apartment collections to a minimum is to clean out regularly and — with the addition of new things every now and then — donate as often as they can. They also have the sweetest pup, Tucker, who stole the show. You can see more of Tucker here: @tuckerthebasenji + #tuckerthebasenji are his official social tags.

Apartment Therapy Survey:

Our Style: I think our style is casual and homey. Our space is filled with plants and wood elements, and a lot of meaningful objects. It feels warm and cozy, in a really airy way.

Inspiration: I follow #ourtopangahome closely on Instagram, that space is a dream. The occasional home interior wormhole I go down on Pinterest is also highly enjoyable.

Favorite Element: The natural light and outdoor space keep us here. We can never move!

Biggest Challenge: Remaining minimal — we are always downsizing to keep the space as simple as it can be, while still upholding our style.

What Friends Say: They are wowed by the private elevator and patios.

Biggest Embarrassment: The dog kennel for sure. It's hard to make that look natural.

Proudest DIY: Most of our art is self-made, from photos we've taken, to paintings, and handmade pieces.

Biggest Indulgence: My pattern-making table is my biggest indulgence; it's also an indulgence on space. David's indulgences are his camera and whiskey collection. However, our dream indulgence is a credenza.

Best Advice: De-cluttering and donating things year round is pretty rewarding. Keeping the apartment clean is so important. It's impossible to hide a mess in a small space, the whole apartment feels off.

Dream Sources: Mid-century pieces, Schoolhouse Electric, Restoration Hardware, and lots of brands found on Instagram.
