What is the advantage of SMALL? Living in a small space requires attention--constant editing and pruning to encourage the best possible environment...

What is the advantage of SMALL? CONT'D

...This space is much larger than my previous apartments, but benefits from the editing habits I've gathered in my 10 years in very tiny apartments.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

I made many of the things in my home--the wall coverings, studio workbench, headboard, rugs, and cushions. So my favorite resource is Cole Hardware, Home Depot, and any fabric store.

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

My favorite element is the fireplace mantel. I found it at a salvage yard, repaired it, and now use it to disguise my television when not in use. It adds a "homey" element to this former commercial concrete space.
