Small Cool 2010: Anu's Creative Freedom

Tiny Division # 8


Who Lives Here: Anu Location: Clayton, Missouri Size: 593 square feet

What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? I love my kitchen. Although I rarely cook because I eat at the restaurant where I work, I think it's really nice to have such a large kitchen in a one- bedroom apartment. The kitchen in my previous studio apartment was a lot smaller.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? Larger space gives me more creative freedom but it also requires more money, It was a bit challenging at first to find items that I want without breaking the bank. But with a little bit of research and patience, I did overcome the obstacle eventually. Most of the decorative accessories in my apartment came from flea markets and bargain stores like Target and Home Goods. Some items I got off of craigslists at unbelievable price like $100 chinese chippendale chair in the living room. Even the wallpaper throughout the whole apartment costs less than $250.

I find the internet and local library to be the most helpful for my decorating hobby. Another resource I think is very helpful is the sales associates at hardware stores for my DIY projects. Ever since I started this decorating obsession a few years back, I have always been on the look out for good stuff and enjoyed the process of bargain hunting along the way. It has been great fun.
