What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? The French doors and attached balcony were the deal makers for me when I first viewed the space. The natural light let in by the doors gives my space the glow and energy I need.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? My space is shaped like a large shoebox, so carving our distinct zones was the priority. My love seat/couch and bookshelf create the impression of "walls" that gave my studio some structure. Additionally, in purchasing modern furniture I chose simple pieces that were proportional to room size; maintaining a neat and defined space.

Great resources: IKEA, Design Within Reach, and my local hardware store for specialized details like simple light fixtures or a modified doggy door that I installed in one of the panes of the unused French door for access to the balcony.
