What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? One of my favorite things about our house is its character. The house was built in the 1920's and most of its handcrafted charms have gone untouched.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? One challenge we have faced with furnishing our home has been to find appropriately sized furniture for each room. Standard sized furniture can get large and cumbersome in our small spaces. I find that furniture with minimal bulk and simple clean lines help a small space feel appropriately furnished and allow for the illusion of space. A few of my favorite places for shopping would be Room & Board, IKEA and craigslist.
