What is the advantage of SMALL? Living SMALL means lower rent and utility bills, less space to clean and maintain, makes it easier and cheaper to decorate and
encourages time outside and creativity,...

Besides, the location of my small is grand: nearby shopping, restaurants and bars, 10 minutes walking from work, 20 minutes from the beach ...

What's your favorite resource for your home?

Im a huge fan of smallest coolest...I spend hours looking at your site!

Also HGTV, 20 Casas magazine,,,...

Due to my limited budget, ikea always comes in handy...Zara Home, Natura, Terra Extraña and Habitat have some lovely stuff and Biosca & Botey has the best lamps in town.

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

I love the white mirror and the small rounded chest of drawers in the foyer,... but the not so cool Ikea sofa in the living room is the cheapest (2nd hand) and most comfortable sofa Ive ever had!
