What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? Our cottage is a renovated carriage house behind another refurbished Victorian. We love the pecan wood floors and the windows that let light stream into our space.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? We are both full-time college students, so it was difficult to furnish our rented cottage on a budget. We found many of our favorite pieces (such as the credenza and the wing-backed chair) through craigslist, garage sales, and hand-me-downs. Still, we wouldn't trade our cottage for the world.
