What is the advantage of SMALL? Living in a small space forces me to constantly evaluate my possessions and let go of stuff I have no use or room for.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

I am a grad student so I'm always on the lookout for a good deal. Portland has some great, affordable vintage shops: Lounge Lizard on Hawthorne, Hawthorne Vintage, and Find on Interstate Ave. in North Portland. Oh and of course, Goodwill!

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

I love my green wall. I lived with the beige walls for about 2 days before I couldn't stand it anymore! Living with color is worth the sacrifice of my security deposit.
