Little Division #14

Who Lives Here: Me, my husband and our 3 year old son.
Location: Pasadena, California
Size: 800 square feet

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? I think the large sliding doors that open to the courtyard- makes it feel like a real community. There are a lot of musicians and fun people in the complex, so it sounds like something out of a musical or Rear Window, minus the murderous salesman...

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? We both work from home- My husband is an architect and I have a design business. So we have a built-in that divides what is now his office (formerly the dining nook) from the dining area (formerly part of a now-smaller living room) and I have a nice corner of our bedroom...Oh, and we have a toddler, so, yeah....there are challenges there. But for us, good design and using our hands made it all work in the end...
