Small Cool 2009: JasonSF's Period Details

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? I LOVE that I have huge windows that give this place a lot of really nice light. It makes the place seem larger. I also love how the windows open outward...gives them a lot of charm. What really makes this place though is all the period details that come from a 100 year old building...wood floors, great moldings, original subway tile in the bathroom, etc. I fell in love with it when I first saw it and had to live here! Plus it was great to get a place with a large enough closet to make a bedroom nook.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The biggest problem I had was my living room layout. I don't have an open wall, because every wall has doors or windows right in the middle. The room is too small to float the furniture I have, so I needed someplace to put my sofa. Since the bedroom nook has 2 entrances, I closed off an entire wall with curtains. It gave me a lot more options on furniture layout, but because it is blocked off I also don't have to make my bed all the time :)
