When I dream about what my perfect dream studio would look like, I immediately think of comfort. Easy and breezy (maybe I'm a cover girl, who knows) because I'd be spending a lot of time in one small space &mdash I'd want to be comfortable no matter where I was. I couldn't sacrifice on certain items (bed!), so my studio is somewhat of a bedroom meets living room meets workspace.

&bull White Wood Flooring is a must for my Dream Studio. I've fallen in love with them many times over, but recently fell again when I saw the white wood floors in this Vibrant Vintage Home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

&bull I've slept on a number of pull out couches before and they're just not comfortable. I happen to really enjoy sleeping and get as many hours of rest as I can &mdash so I wasn't willing to sacrifice having a bed. The key to having a bed in a small space &mdash storage! This Matera Bed from DWR has ample storage below.

&bull If I were to live in the studio of my dreams, it would most definitely have to have huge windows. We really love the huge windows from Derek & Jennifer's Dashing Digs!

&bull With all wood floors, an area rug is a definite must. Mustard Yellow (or any shade of yellow, really) and Grey are our favorite colors. It was pretty much fate when we found this Moonstar Rug from Anthropologie.

&bull Wallpaper is an extremely important part of a small space. I decided on the Vineyard Critters Wallpaper from Anthropologie because the thin black lines are printed on a pearlized paper &mdash adding extra shine and interest.

&bull Due to the fact that I'm a writer, it's extremely important to be able to incorporate an office into my small studio. This great Matera Six Drawer Dresser from DWR matches the bed perfectly. It also serves as a desk for my Macbook Pro!

&bull Pillows are an easy way to decorate a small place. Not only do they serve as decoration, but they also serve as seating! The Fluffy Elephant Floor pillow that we recently talked about and the From Paradise Pillow are large enough to be dutiful.

&bull Of course I'd want to have local artwork in my studio. Not only to serve as inspiration to keep the creative juices flowing, but also for the plain old reason that I really freakin' like it! I selected a Travel Poster by The Heads of State &mdash Philadelphia, obviously.

&bull As soon as we saw this Mod Aqua Table Lamp from Crate & Barrel, we knew we had to have it (and we do, in real life). The great thing about it, it's part of these 10 Bedroom Finds for Under $50!
