What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? I love that — even in an apartment this small — I have a separate, eat-in kitchen. It helps my living space feel larger, and also makes it a bit easier to throw dinner parties — which I love to do.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? While living in a small space has helped me curb my packrat tendencies (somewhat), I still have a bit of a thing for, well, things. IKEA storage to corral my books, clothes and kitchen paraphernalia helped a ton, but did nothing for the collection of family photos & memorabilia that I received from my grandparents. I love family photos, but hate cluttering up surfaces with them, so I decided to hang them, salon-style, in my bathroom, along with photos I've taken on vacations around the world. I figure it gives guests something to look at, and brightens up my otherwise-beige-as-it-gets rental bathroom!
