What is the advantage of SMALL? CONT'D

...I also love the smallness because I live alone, and it's cozy and warm and is the perfect amount of space for me!

What's your favorite resource for your home?

IKEA: When you mix and match from different collections, as well as adding pieces from Craigslist (or things you've inherited from family members), it doesn't look totally IKEA-sterile.

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

The color - the mint walls and daffodil doors/trim make it feel like springtime all year round; and the magenta rug and multi-colored pillows really make it feel homey.
