What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? As much as I'd love to, I can't plan the decor of my home. Instead, I let my heart guide me to the pieces I can't live without... Quite accidentally, I've picked up items that not only fit well together, but can be rearranged on a whim to create entirely different looks so that I'm never bored in our ever-changing space. Our home is filled with mismatched items from different times and places that somehow work together. Individually, these objects hold memories from our travels, trials and tribulations. Collectively, they spell out Home.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The hardest part about furnishing our home has been dealing with the lack of storage. Aside from donating mounds of our belongings to the Salvation Army, I have had to make sure that every piece of furniture does double duty. The TV cabinet holds my tools in addition to electronics. A mid-century armoire in the dining area has been repurposed as a pantry... I've learned to live with less, and integrate the rest into the decor.
