What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? The high ceilings and large, southern facing windows that bathe the apartment in sunlight make my small apartment appear much larger. And although the apartment is so bright that I only need to use the chandelier lighting in the evenings, the lighting fixtures are among my favorite design elements.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The floor plan is a huge rectangle so the options are limited as to furniture placement. I long for the smallest of vestibules that would make for a better transition from the front door into the living space. I broke up the living room into two distinct areas with the couch in the middle. I also opted for a round glass coffee table which makes the main seating area appear less crowded.
