Small Cool 2010: Suraj's Abundance of Light

Tiny Division # 14


Who Lives Here: Suraj

What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? I love the amount of natural light and the floor to ceiling windows. It's makes the space feel so much bigger. Nothing makes an environment feel better than an abundance of natural light. It made it possible to use dark colors and still keep a light feeling in the space.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? The biggest challenge was seperating areas for specific funtions without making them feel closed off and claustrophobic. I used a large open book shelf to divide the sleeping area from the living space. It keeps the areas open and lets light through, but allows the sleep area to feel private.
