What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? I love the original hardwood floors, super high ceilings, giant windows and exposed brick wall. I'm still a renter, so I'm used to making due with what an apartment has. I was really excited to find something that had almost all the features I was looking for.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? I moved into this apartment knowing it would be a temporary home. I didn't want to spend any money on furniture to perfectly fit this place, knowing that I probably wouldn't be here that long…so I didn't. My tastes have changed a lot since the oversized floral couch came into my world, but I've enjoyed the challenge of working what I have into a home that I love.
Also, I work out of my home so I had to find both a home and an office/gallery/studio in 800ish square feet I've been really happy with my current floor plan, but had to go through about 3 other incarnations to finally get here!
