Janet's Peaceful Modern 

Who Lives Here: Two: My husband (artist - his piece is in the fireplace) & graphic designer), me and our dog, Coco.
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Size: 1200 square feet

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? We recently remodeled and torn down two walls that enclosed our kitchen. With the new open floor plan, this makes a great entertaining space. We designed the layout of the kitchen with entertaining in mind - the island acts a buffet. Now we can interact with our guests and be part of the party whereas before, we were stuck behind a wall with everyone on the other side.

Favorite design element is the peace sign above our back door. It's a old acrylic sign from the 70s that was made to look like glass. It was my dad's. He passed away, but I see a reminder of him everyday.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The biggest challenge was trying to incorporate our existing furniture and art from pre-remodel into the new space. We really like the Mid-Century look and we added new vintage pieces (courtesy of Craigslist) that helped keep the room warm and tied everything together. Many of the sculpture pieces were made by our friend (who is my husband's business partner) and the graphic art in the dining area was painted my husband's art teacher from Art Center. Painting in the fireplace was done by my husband, Al.
