What is the advantage of SMALL? Small not only provides affordability for me, but a coziness that really makes it seem like home. Plus I was never a fan of chores--the smaller the place the fewer housekeeping obligations.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

The post college years have been monetarily tough...so I'm a fan of the thrift store and a can of paint. With the exception of my "desk" all the furniture is either a hand-me-down or thrifted treasure.

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

I fell in love with the curtain dividing my bedroom the minute I hung it. In all the apartments I've lived, I've never had a closet in my bedroom. The curtain helps hide all the clothes and clutter when people either enter my room or see it from the living room.
