What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? The three large floor to ceiling front windows provide excellent Pacific Coast lighting and a cool sea breeze. I loved decorating them with grommet drapes in white to keep the sunlight in and provide privacy at night.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? It was a challenge creating a comfortable and inviting space in such small quarters with existing furniture I had. I implemented furnishings and accessories that wouldn’t overpower the rooms and strived to keep a relaxed space for guests. I added an armless chair in living room so it wouldn’t look as heavy and a shorter coffee table to create more visual space.
