What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? I am the first tenant in this gut-rehab unit so I enjoy new appliances, bath fixtures, and wood floor along with some vintage charm. It is the perfect setting for my eclectic collection of mid-century, antique, and contemporary furniture and accessories.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The furniture layout possibilities are quite limited due to the placement of room divisions and windows. I love the amount of light the many windows provide, but they also allow for only one furniture arrangement. I like to regularly re-arrange rooms and the pieces have been forced to remain static for four years. I have dealt with this challenge by continually re-curating artwork and table top accessories, so even though the map of the rooms remains the same, the feel, colors, and style are ever-evolving.
