What I Love About My Home
Having moved from my shoe-box sized studio (Small Cool 2009 entry: akaGrace's Efficiency of Mirrors), I appreciate having a kitchen with enough storage for my pots and baking pans. I also have counter space to roll pie dough. Oh, and also a full size refrigerator that keeps ice cream frozen.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
The temptation of shiny, new furniture at the shops can be overwhelming. I decided to take my time, use what I have and carefully consider what to bring into the space: What furniture do I really need? What colors would work with the light? Some of the my new pieces are gifts or thrifts. I also tapped into my crafty side, sewing my own curtains and pillow covers, and stretching fabric to make wall decor.
