What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? I really love our kitchen. We redesigned the layout to work as efficiently as possible in the small space and created an dining nook since we don't have a dining room. And the best part, is that my husband and I did all the work - design, demo and installation. It's a warm space that's simple and welcoming.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? Definitely storage. Our house is a small, 1940s cottage and while we love that there aren't any "weird" unusable spaces, closet/storage space is hard to come by. This challenge requires us to be really thoughtful of our purchases - not only because we know we can live with less - but because everything needs to have a place in our small house. We solve our storage challenges with simple wall shelving and furniture pieces that can pull double-duty.
