What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? I really love the bed/office area. I'm happy I invested in the Ikea Malm bed-desk four years ago because they don't make it anymore and it pretty much saves my life everyday. I think it's probably the area that is most complete and pulled together and that I use most often, so based on it's functionality it's by far my favorite element. Oh and working from home, I get to lie in bed all day which is pretty glorious.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? I couldn't really change much, being a renter and moving from apartments. I really had to edit everything, especially since this move was a downsize. I had an idea of where everything would go before I moved in but with that not really working I had to design on the fly while the movers did the heavy lifting, which actually was an amazing combination. As far as resources Ikea is always a go to, but I like to change out the hardware or add hooks and things to make it less "Ikea". Also Anthropologie sales and antique malls and flee markets were a massive help on my small budget, but most of all I scoured my Mom's house for anything not nailed down. I think that really helped me to pull it all together.
