What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? I love the seating by the window. A carefully curated Barce-"clone"-a chair (Christmas gift from Ernie), trumpet table and MCM yellow chair! (Oh, and the mountain wall mural in the bedroom).

Give Rachel and Ernie 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 challenge was creating separate areas in our horribly dull apartment floorplan. There's only one proper place for a couch, tv, side chair, etc. So we had to get creative with wall art/paint/colors to distinguish our place from the rest of our neighbors! We also entertain a lot, so we needed lots of seating, but nothing that looked overly cramped. I scoured Craigslist every single day (so much that it became an unhealthy obsession) to find the appropriate furniture for the right price! I love the way it turned out, because it never feels small to me. Let alone "tiny"!
