What I Love About My Home
I love the light and the views--I'm on the top floor of a building right next to campus and I get to look out on the library, residential colleges, towers, and downtown. I also love the hardwood floors, and the pantry space that was just the right size for my small fridge.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Figuring out how to create a work space. I'm in school, so I needed a spot where I could study when I wasn't at the library, but I didn't want to sacrifice more open space for a dedicated desk. I was able to get a kitchen island that serves as a food prep station, a small dining table, and a desk all in one. My bookshelf (the tried-and-true expedit) meanwhile gets to hold all of my course and research books, computer/electronics, papers, and notebooks, (not to mention helping to separate my bed from my living space).
