What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? My favorite thing about my home is that it constantly brings me joy. Even as a renter, the creation of it has been a labor of love and continues to be a work in progress.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? Like most of us, the biggest challenge was affording everything I wanted. Furnishing the space has been an exercise in both patience and self-exploration knowing that I wanted to create a home that reflected my life but would be comfortable for friends and family. Combing online auctions, "junk" shops, and the occasional street find (along with some do-it-yourself elbow grease), I had to realize that it all wouldn't happen overnight. As I do with my clients, I started with the foundation and slowly layered the things that give a home soul.
