What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? My couch is my most recent addition, and I'm absolutely in love with it. After suffering through a year and a half of stiff, boring IKEA "couch-dom", I finally have a beautiful 1940's settee. It was a find, a bargain, and a very welcome addition to my apartment.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home?
Working on a college student's budget, I had to learn to pace myself. I really built my apartment. I hunted for bargains, and saved for pieces I really wanted. In doing so I learned to be resourceful, and sort of hunt off the beaten path for finds.
