What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? The light quality is amazing. I have seven windows and they all just stream sunlight for most of the day. The rear four windows are also completely covered in ivy in the late spring and summer. The light coming through is filtered and beautiful and I have greenery to enjoy (that I don't have to water!)

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? Besides having really no budget for new furniture after moving from a differently configured apartment, my main concern was arrangement. My apartment is railroad-style so the space is a bit awkward. I spent a long time thinking about how to carve it up into uncluttered, usable space. I've really enjoyed creating little nooks in each room for doing whatever I might want to do. I have a reading spot for my beloved Thonet rocking chair, a loungey couch and chair for watching movies or hanging out, a craft/sewing/studio area and a workspace. Future plans include a new couch and desk.
