What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? My favorite element of my space would have to be the tiled fireplace. It was a full 3 day project that resulted in a great focal point in the front room.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? One of the biggest challenges in furnishing my space was trying to modernize the space but also keep it with a touch of contemporary. Because the space had pre-existing wooden trim that kept the space a little more traditional looking, I had to find a way to modernize it but also incorporate a sense of flow.

In the end the furniture and color scheme helped unite the space. By adding pops of accent colors through all the different areas of the space, I was able to create a sense of unity and flow from one space to the next.
