What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? The favorite element of our small home is the common living space. The majority of our home is one common room so we really wanted to maximize the functionality of it. We have a home office, music space, kitchen, dining room and living room in one! This makes the home very comfortable and easy to converse while cooking, studying and working.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? Our biggest challenge was BUDGET. We just got married and moved in together three months ago. Scott is in school so we are always looking for inexpensive ways to bring our home to life. We scoured some of our favorite design sites and magazines to get ideas and then built a lot of the furniture ourselves. Scott built the kitchen table from recycled wood and chairs from his grandfathers old workshop, we found the coffee table in an old dumpster and refurbished, built the headboard with directions found on Apartment Therapy, living room shelves are made out of $2 gutter trim, the bedroom curtains are plumbing pipe and fabric from a local shop. Our home is like one giant piece of artwork and we are always finding new projects... although now running out of space!
