What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? Our wireless system. Even though we have a small space, we have a lot of tech. By having a wireless system, both of us can simultaneously browse the internet, share music libraries and use the same printer. It also enables us to play music from our computers through the surround sound system in the living room.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? My girlfriend and I moved in together last year in August. We had a bunch of furniture between the two of us so we didn't have to buy much. I hacked a dinning room table I had to make it half the size so it would fit in our kitchen. We also needed two seperate work spaces, so we put my desk with iMac in the bedroom and her desk with laptop in the living area. We tried to only keep what we needed and buy what was neccessary (such as the green rug in the living room to tie things together). Resources that I enjoy and would recommend to others are IKEA, CB2, West Elm and Craigslist. Most of our furniture is from those four places.
