What is the advantage of SMALL? I love living in a small space. It helps me to focus on just the basics. I don't feel overwhelmed with possessions and I feel like if I moved I could sell it all with no hesitation. I also feel that it is easier for me to create a cozy place where I can feel relaxed and at ease.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

I am working on getting my MFA in studio art so basically that translates as "I have no money." I think even if I did have money I would still shop at the same places...IKEA, thrift stores and craigslist.

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

My favorite element in my home is the art work that I have received from my friends who are artists. I like my furnishings to be simple so for me the art is what stands out. I think its a great way to personalize a space and make a statement.
