What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? My favorite element in my home is all the concrete. The floors are polished concrete, and the ceiling is concrete as well. It makes the place very modern and sleek. Needles to say the floors are very easy to clean. I opted for not having an area rug because visually I prefer not having anything breaking up the space and I love showing up the beautiful floors. I love that the kitchen opens to the living room area. The balcony is great and I have dinner with my husband there very often in our bistro table.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? I think my biggest challenge was making everything look good together because it is one open space. Therefore, I choose a neutral couch, and opted for black furniture, but bought a natural wood desk and metal shelves just to break up the black a little bit and still keep it neutral. I added some touches of red, which is my favorite color, but I do think I still need more red. We still have to purchase bar stools for the kitchen island.
