What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? I LOVE our pipe-and-board shelving unit. We shamelessly stole the idea from Morgan at The Brick House, who admitted to stealing it from a hotel in Palm Springs. It can hold a ton, and we plan to use it as a buffet for when we have friends over.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? For two people, we have a LOT of stuff. Even though we have more space than most, we still have more stuff than most, and we had to figure out where to put everything, especially when we have surprisingly little closet space. We have to keep reminding ourselves that storage can be vertical, too, rather than just lateral. For example, bookcases can have add-ons on top rather than to the side. Wall space can be utilized rather than buying more furniture. We're both very tall (5'10" and 6'3"), so we SHOULD be able to reach tall things…
