What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? Our windows face east and west, so we get fabulous light all day long. There are crystals hung in almost every window, so throughout the day rainbows are reflected on the walls. The natural light is also ideal for enjoying our changing collection of artworks.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? Storage is a huge issue in our apartment. There is just one small 2.5 x 5 x 8.5 closet for all of our belongings! We looked for furniture that provided ample storage and did not weigh the place down but rather made it feel open and welcoming. And we have used every available inch of space under furniture and behind doors. We have enjoyed the challenge of figuring out how to best use the space—most of our furniture has been in at least two different spots.
