What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? It was love at first sight when I saw my red armoire. I bought it even though it didn't quite fit in my last apartment because I knew it would be the centerpiece of my next place. It was my design inspiration for the living room and really grounds the space with something warm and beautiful.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? Kevin and I had to combine two apartments into one when we moved in together, and I definitely had more than my fair share of clothes and creature comforts. We downsized substantially, but storage was still an issue. So we tried to make sure every piece in the apartment served our need for storage and style: the armoire holds our TV and stereo equipment; in the hallway we installed hidden shoe cubbies that rest flush against the wall; the bench in the bedroom holds all our towels and linens; and we found a stunning bookcase at an antique furniture store that holds more than 200 books.
