kittens, apartment therapy's small cool contest is off and running. as always, it's an inspiration to all homes big and small, narrow and wide, tall and short.

i have lots of faves this year, but matt's little 781 sq. foot huston, TX, pad is quite fab with its creative use of "bed in living room," hand-me-down wares, nostalgic pieces, and craigslist finds. it's amazingly curated and his spotted pup seals the deal.

check out all of the small cool contestants and vote for your favorite here.
