What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? The gorgeous light that floods in through my gigantic windows, which is the primary reason I chose to live here. It bathes my home - and the modern eclectic furniture and special mementos within it- in the most beautiful mood, which changes throughout the day. It may seem strange, but my favorite part about my place is a space where nothing but glass exists.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? My apartment has little built-in storage. I mean, only one closet for a shoe-aholic?! I had to create storage in visible spaces and hide it from the untrained eye. I added an armoire for dresses (and simultaneously delineated the space between my sleep and work areas), used a huge bookshelf for my massive book and random trinket collections (which separates my office from my living area), and then I hid things like art supplies and camping gear in large (bright green!) cardboard boxes above my kitchen. Storage is definitely a challenge but it is fun to find creative solutions!
