What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home?The fact that I carved distinct sleeping, eating and living areas out of my little box of an apartment. It's nice to have the separate areas even if they are just inches apart from one another.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? Dealing with a tiny rectangular room with very little wall space that you can actually put furniture up against was a huge challenge. I was saved by floor planning software that allowed me to spend many dorky hours playing with the placement of the furniture I was thinking about purchasing. It was difficult to find just the right pieces to fit the space and I was sorry I didn't have the flexibility to get a couple of funkier vintage pieces. It was also challenging to avoid using too many bright colors. I love color but I need soothing colors to be able to sleep. With no separate bedroom I had to tone the whole place down a notch, but I'm glad I managed to squeeze a few bright pieces in.
