What is the advantage of SMALL? Every time people come over, it already feels intimate. Add a little vino and you're set.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

Ikea, but never in the way Ikea intends. There's a lot of Ikea in my apartment you aren't seeing. I like to sand, recover, repaint and repurpose. It's the only way on a budget.

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

The giraffe chair makes me happy every time I see it. I'm so proud I found it on craigslist, saw its potential and spent hours sanding, priming, painting, re-upholstering and loving it. It's one of the first peices that is really truly my style, and I'm excited to make the rest of the apt. as fabulous!
