What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home?Our kitchen has to be the best part of our home - for such a small house, it's a pretty big room! Its one of the few rooms that we had to do a lot of work on, and we're very proud of how efficient and 'us' it is. It also feels like the never-ending reno (we still haven't put up our tile backsplash), but a comfortable kitchen is worth every ounce of time and money we can afford to put into it, so we'll keep plugging away until it's finished.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? We're on a quest to find the perfect layout for our furniture, and side tables/chairs/beds are constantly moving around in an effort to squeeze some more floor space out of our rooms. We seem to feel like we're constantly at capacity, and a piano has recently been added to the mix, just to make our lives a little more exciting. But the more we play with what we already have, the better our space gets.

Our best resource has been the internet, which we're currently scouring for closet ideas. Following the challenge of having lots of furniture and very little floor space comes our bedroom without a closet. We're still working on that one... and we hope to have solved it by the end of summer.
