What is the advantage of SMALL? I love a good challenge. Small apartments are challenging in a good way because you have to be really creative with how you use your space, especially if you rent instead of own like we do...

What is the advantage of SMALL? CONT'D

...Sometimes challenging spaces lead to unexpected positive outcomes. Call me sadistic. But I consider that to be a plus.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

We both have a lot of books, art, and knick knacks so the full wall of book shelves we had custom made made it possible for us to combine all of our stuff in a fun and useful way. Plus, we can take it with us if we ever decide to move.

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

This place has character. We were both charmed by the apartment's quirky qualities when we first looked at it. The wood plank floors gives the place a sort of shabby yet cozy feel. The fact that the apartment had wooden floors and not wall to wall carpeting was probably the main reason why we decided to move in.
