What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? If I could choose just one thing I'll say the light. It has fairly big windows and has sun from morning to about 12:00. If it's sunny it's very bright even in the afternoon and evening then the light reflects from many buildings and windows in the city. Some other things I like about it is the balcony, view and floorplan.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? It's small so it's hard to fit all the functions that I want to have. I've changed things many times but the way it is now I'm fairly satisfied with. The latest thing I did was to get another table so I now have a dinner table and a computer table. Really nice to have a dinner table that's always empty. Another thing I like a lot is the removal of the wall between the kitchen and room a couple of years ago, it made the apartment look bigger I think, but it was a lot of work. The kitchen is another thing where I have changed many things. It's a blend of the original from 1934 and some new things I've added and I think it works pretty good now. Lots of storage and counter space. Many things in my apartment are from IKEA and that's where I got some inspiration from also I guess.
