What is the advantage of SMALL? Its cozy, less space to clean, and we were able to make it feel like home in less than the 3-1/2 months we've lived here....and, of course, the price is right.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

The Ark, Brown elephant, Antique Malls, CB2, IKEA, hand me downs, our own artwork, art by friends.

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

Our wood-burning fireplace with our DIY / Ikea built-in shelves. It has become the focal point of our apartment and showcases all of our great antique store finds / collectibles.
