What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? I love all of the music memorabilia that we have hanging on our walls. My fiance works in the music industry, so all of the albums, CDs, and posters that we have displayed are signed by the artists that he's worked with. It adds a lot of personality that might otherwise be lacking due to our fairly limited budget.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? I think that one of our biggest challenges has been, like many others, paring down our belongings to only the essentials and necessities, and trying to fit everything into a very small space. We worked through this by playing around with the furniture to make the most of the space and make it feel as open as possible, and by making sure every piece that took up floor space served at least one or two purposes, and was not just decorative. In addition to that, we wanted to make sure that everything we bought would not only work in our apartment now, but also in any larger space that we move to in the future.
