What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? We love the big south-facing window in the living room: It keeps the place very bright during the day and gives us a great view of the city lights at night.

Give Mike & Marie a THUMBS UP if you think this home belongs in the finals!

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The biggest challenges were budget and storage. We don't have a lot of closet space and we always had to think about organization and storage when designing our space. We decorated on a small budget, buying mostly from Craigslist and Ikea. We also needed to be crafty at times; One our favorite things in the apartment is a huge picture frame Marie made by hand at Home Depot.
