What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? It's a tough call, as there are many things in our home that we love and that we're proud of. I think I would have to say that our favorite aspect of our home is our backyard. When we first moved in, it was practically a landfill with a rickety fence and a rotted deck. Now, it is an extension of our home and adds much needed square footage. It is our favorite place to entertain and relax. We even spent this past Thanksgiving around the firepit.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? Probably working with the style of our old rowhome. We started decorating our house with a minimalist style, but realized that it wasn't working — it felt cold and boring. We have piece by piece been adding, rearranging, and changing furnishings to make our home cozy, fun, and eclectic. We are always on the hunt for new items at flea markets, the curb, and local gems like Material Culture.
