Small Cool 2009: Katie Beck's Classic & Modern Mix

Tiny Division #36

Who Lives Here: Katie Beck + 1 Location: Washington, DC Size: 600 square feet

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? I love all of the windows. I have 8 big windows in all and I get the most wonderful light. I have an open floor plan with the kitchen, living room and dining area sharing one space. I also love the old wood floors. I made sure to keep the original floors and old claw foot tub when I remodeled I like the mix of modern and classic aesthetics.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? When I moved in, there were no closets. Not even in the bedroom, so storage was a huge priority for me. I designed a double closet in the living room / kitchen area for coats and a washer and dryer and also put in two closets in the bedroom. I wanted to keep the nice square shapes of the rooms, and also add as much storage as possible. I put in a ton of cabinets in the kitchen which go all the way up to the ceiling to maximize my space.
