What is the advantage of SMALL? For us living small makes us more organized and small makes us really understand the difference between a need and a want. We save money and we gain time together, we wouldn't want it any other way!

What's your favorite resource for your home?

So many...Room and Board, Etsy, Edgewater Antique Mall, Ebay, Flickr, DesignSponge, NotCot, Domino and of course Apartment Therapy.

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

Our favorite element is how much our small, cool home reflects us, our style, and our personalities. Several pieces in our apartment were made by either us or family members so that makes it feel even more special and unique.
