What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home?Our wall organizing unit -- which is home to our desk, extra closet space, and storage. It's the central hub of our home and small business. Without this unit, things would probably be a bit more chaotic.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? Hands down: choosing the right furniture. When we moved into our apartment we knew we would have to be strategic about how to make it all fit. Like I said previously, our wall organizing unit was a great storage solution and was also fairly narrow, which gave us more walking room. Our mini-couch doubles as a fold out bed and because I am a designer, choosing the perfect size desk allows me enough room to contain my materials and inspiration. The internet was our main source of inspiration for small space solutions -- it was about finding things that worked for other people and then seeing how we could translate that into our space.
