What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? My favorite element has to be the "secret" attic hideaway that's turned into the most comfortable studio ever. Nobody ever suspects what's hiding behind that door!

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? It's been difficult to make sure there is enough seating to entertain our rather large family without making the house feel overcrowded. And of course, there has to be open floor play space for our nieces and our dogs! We have to be conscious of the flow of our floor plan and make sure there are always nooks for people to gather in. And of course, everyone ends up in our teeny kitchen! Good thing it's also equipped with a nook.

Our resources? Obsessively combing through home and design websites for inspiration past and present! We go with what works (and is budget friendly). Antiques and family heirlooms, craigslist vintage finds, and ikea staples have all found their way into our home.
