What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? What I really love about my apartment is that it is totally a reflection of me. I didn't want to have to buy things to serve a quick storage purchase, nor did I want to get anything too specific to this apartment, as I rent. I wanted furnishings and accessories that I truly loved, and that I knew I would have for years to come.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? I am a person who just likes "things" and if I had 10,000 square feet to fill up, I could easily do so. I really wanted to make sure I got in the things I liked without being engulfed by them — a very large dresser, a hope chest, and concealed storage under my sewing machine help me keep necessities out of sight and keep the apartment a clutter-free (and hopefully calming) place to be.
