What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? I get to enjoy a large amount of natural light and wonderful views of San Francisco due to many large windows that line the perimeter of my apartment.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? I live in a Studio apartment in San Francisco and often times I have visitors. Therefore, I needed a separate sleep-over space. My solution was to hang curtains to be used in the doorway between the living and the dining space that provide privacy when the French-doors are closed. I added a twin bed and used pillows to create a sofa-like seating area and moved a dining table into the corner beside it. This offers the possibility for dining, lounging and sleeping if needed; all within a limited space.
