What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? I really love my $8 craigslist find, it's a green retro styled chair that fits perfectly in an awkward corner of my apartment. It's a great guest chair. One of these days I hope to find the right fabric to recover it with, but for now I find it's rough edges give it great character.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? Storage was a big issue in my place. The new building did not come with storage lockers, so I was left with a problem to sort out. I decided to build in shelves and create hidden storage in places like drawers under my bed and cubes that are storage as well as extra seating.
