Who Lives There: Design Debutante
Location: Kansas City, Missouri

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? Aside from the floor-to-ceiling southern exposure windows in each room, I love the raw palette. Concrete floors, concrete ceilings, and renter's white walls allow me to add just about any combo of colors my little heart desires. And these days, that translates to TONS of bright colors that change OFTEN!

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? Budget. ALthough this is my first place, I knew I wanted a loft, and I knew I wanted it to reflect me...perfectly. I wasn't going to settle for the "first-apartment-bachelorette-pad-hand-me-down" look, so I had to get clever with furnishings and decor. I lucked out on my DWR sofa and Modernica chair by scoring them from a discount/damaged freight store. Most of the MCM items were found on Craigslist, which I love, love, love. For art & other decor, I love thrift stores, flea markets, & ETSY. The one goal I wanted to achieve with my apartment was to NOT have it look like I decorated it in a weekend from some big-box home decor store. Instead, I want my home to feel as though each item were hand-picked (as they are) and to hopefully reflect the countless weeks & (and sometimes months) that I gruelingly shopped in search of what perfectlyscreams "ME"!
