What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? My favorite element is the fact that, yes, I do live subterraneanly — but it certainly does not feel like a typical basement. We have tried very hard to keep the space light and (somewhat) minimal. By opting to keep the walls white it really maximizes the overall feel of our home. We add pops of color to keep things interesting.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? I've found there are several challenges to living in a basement apartment. A big one being the numerous access panels and breaker boxes randomly scattered about our walls. We have become very creative in disguising things, ergo the wood art in the dining room and the hinged bookshelf off the kitchen. And when we could not find a sturdy enough wall to mount our television, my boyfriend concocted a brilliant idea. We bought a telescoping support column that is used in construction. We painted it black, drilled the necessary holes to attached our tv and voila, It works great!
