What is the advantage of SMALL? I feel like I OWN every inch of my space -- I don't feel like any part of it is beyond my control or can't be fixed or changed by me in a weekend...
What is the advantage of SMALL? CONT'D
...I have complete artistic control. And I love my kitchen, which contains every useful implement right in arm's reach. I get a little snippy when visiting cooks exclaim that my kitchen is too small!
What's your favorite resource for your home?
Freecycle and IKEA! And of course, family members, and second-hand shops. I found the great sign in the kitchen in a church rummage sale. And, oddly enough, stationery stores. I love papers and decorative cards.
What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?
I love all the built-in shelving, the door panels, crown-molding, and of course...the wall of windows. I feel like I'm on the West Bank of Paris all the time.
