What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home?It's hard to say. Honestly, my husband and I really enjoy the fact that our new apartment is less than 7 months old and that we're lucky enough to be able to live in Boston's South End neighborhood.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? The interior layout of our apartment is rather generic, a.k.a. "cookie cutter". We knew we had to somehow spice it up a bit and began our design process immediately.

Inspired by art and culture from the 1930's AND the 1970's, we coined the description for our new home, "deco/disco". Now that we had a vision for our new home, the detailing process became focused and efficient.

Benjamin Moore Aura Paints were used for the walls, an Art Deco pattern wallpaper became the backdrop for our dining room and living room, and we had our living room chair and 2 dining room chairs reupholstered in beautiful and graphic fabrics to enhance our desired aesthetic.

We love our home and truly feel it's an extension of our creative personalities. Thanks for your thumbs up!
