Small Cool 2010: Natalie's Natural Light & Vintage Details

What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? I love the vintage details -- the hardwood floors, crown molding, gas stove, old telephone -- but the best part is the natural light. Just before sunset it positively glows.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? My goal has been to only invest in items I would want to take with me when I move. There are plenty of things I would change if I owned the place, but as a renter I'm trying (somewhat successfully) to exert some willpower. I think the design element I'm most proud of is the enclosure for my two guinea pigs. I wanted to create a large space for them to roam that wasn't an eyesore, and I think the white picket fence does the trick nicely.
