What is the advantage of SMALL? How much space does one person really need? If it starts to feel small, then I need to get rid of some stuff.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

For thrift stores, I love Out of the Closet, not just for great finds (like my red velvet sofa) but also for getting rid of clutter whenever I need to purge the apartment. I get emotionally attached to things, but it's easier to get them if I know they'll have another life with someone else. And all the proceeds benefit HIV/AIDS research.

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?

Since I'm not allowed to paint, I use fabric and ribbons to create areas of dramatic interest on the walls..
