Small Cool 2009: Moo & Ju's Super Comfy

Tiny Division #34

Who Lives Here: Moo & Ju
Location: Brooklyn, New York
Size: 384 square feet

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? Surprisingly, the super-comfy full-sized bed plopped right in the middle of the room. We debated whether to go with a Murphy bed, sofabed, futon, roll-out mat and the like. But we spend a good 1/3 of our life in that thing (more when possible). So we opted for comfort. Instead of being a deal breaker for having parties, it's the ultimate barometer of hosting success. When we look across our cozy space and see friends sprawled across the bed, laughing and comfortable, enjoying food & drink, we know we made the right choice.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? Bad bones: we weren't blessed with gorgeous woodwork, high ceilings or interesting architecture. Instead, our challenge was to take what looked like an average hotel room and turn it into a cozy, welcoming home. We overcame the industrial carpet, bland wall vinyl and boring fixtures with serious doses of personality. Our rule with anything that came home with us was that it had to be useful and beautiful. Thrift shop finds, family heirlooms, travel mementos and personal art & photos help make the space our own.
