What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? The original floors. They have so much character and show wear from the locations of the sewing machine pedals from back when the building was a corset factory. This and of course all of the natural light.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? Wall scale and open floor space were huge hurdles and still remain the most difficult issues to tackle. Without the budget for custom millwork, lots of fancy wall coverings, etc. we turned to sites like etsy.com for art/prints and used blogs (apartment therapy included) to inspire composition. The result, we think, really represents our personalities — "happy minimal hodge podge".
