What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? The biggest challenge for me was finding furniture that was to scale with my place. I tried to find pieces that were not too bulky or heavy looking. For a long time the place was quite minimal. Over time I found pieces to fit with my style that were the proper scale. Recently I developed a need for an 'office'. I decided a secretary desk would work well for me and purchased one with an ugly finish and then painted it to coordinate with my main room. My favorite resources include antique malls, estate sales, and craigslist.
