Small Cool 2009: Brenden & Shannon's Charm & Character

Tiny Division #19

Name: Brenden & Shannon
Location: San Francisco, California
Size: 478 square feet

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? We love the architectural details that our apartment has to offer. The building was built in 1928 and has a lot of charm and character that's difficult to find in new construction.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? Through trial and error we finally figured out the right combination of furniture pieces to work in our small space. We used to have larger furniture that blocked the natural light from our windows. Once we incorporated lower profile pieces, our space immediately opened right up and felt like a completely new, and larger, apartment. We took our time in deciding how to furnish our space, and then sought out specific pieces through flea markets, Craigslist and local retailers.
