What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? My favorite element is that we weave a lot of different inspirations into one setting: antiques like our rug, chain furniture like our couch, custom made furniture like our ottoman, family pieces like our hippo and E-bay finds like much of the art hanging on the walls. It's definitely a unique space that you won't find anywhere else!

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? The biggest challenge in our home is the narrow layout that has a galley kitchen on one side. It was very tricky to make distinct living spaces including a living room, place to eat and a place for our kitchen tools. We moved the furniture around many times. We also made style trays to see how the furniture would fit together before we made any big purchases. Sometimes I've gotten really stressed out about our home and won't invite people over. But, it's my husband who reminds me that there is so much love poured into each corner. Just seeing the pictures reminds me the story of each "scenario" in our home. Even though the floorplan isn't ideal, we've definitely made it into a place where we spend most of our time happily.
