A Mini "Modern Bohemian" Philadelphia Apartment — House Tour

Name: Breanne Furlong
Location: Pennsport — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Size: 550 square feet
Years lived in: 3.5 years, renting

Bre lives in one of those mythic apartments with rent so reasonable, you wonder if the landlord is independently wealthy. A red brick wall and big working fireplace will give you architecture envy. The house next door has an outdoor cat named “Mista Don’t Play” that will invite himself inside if you open a window on a summer day. I’m not from Philly, but Bre’s apartment is in a neighborhood that seems pretty common in mid-Atlantic cities: blocks of humble historic brick row houses mixed with newer buildings, indicating that the neighborhood’s dynamic might soon be changing. Parking on the street will be scarce in a few years, but for now it’s a breeze. And one thing’s for sure, Bre is making the most of her time while she’s here.

Here's How Much the Average Renovation On Fixer Upper Costs

We often get asked why we’ve dedicated so much, ahem, real estate to coverage of Fixer Upper. The bottom line, cutting through the hype, is that the eponymous HGTV show is one of the most-watched cable TV shows in the country for the last five years running — transcending the interiors obsessed, the DIY addicts, and the home flipping voyeurs to draw in millions of Americans for each episode (and now, each rerun).

A Fashion Blogger's "Warm Industrial" Buenos Aires Home — House Tour Greatest Hit

Name: Jana, Mariano and their children Phadi and Christ
Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Size: 2,200 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, owned


This tour deserves a long look because Jana is a fashion blogger and costume designer whose personal style and philosophies are inspiring. But her home is also a decor unicorn: It’s gorgeous and aesthetically pleasing, but also a mashup of unique and unexpected elements that exemplifies just how amazing it is when you design a home that fits your personality…without worrying about trends.
— Adrienne B.


Five years ago Jana and her husband bought a property containing three little houses with plans of turning them into one big home for their family. But then their architect told them that the buildings were in no condition to be saved, so the way forward was to tear them down and start building from scratch.

The Home Decor Styles You'll Soon Be Seeing Everywhere

Last weekend marked the start of High Point Market, the largest home furnishing industry trade show in the world. If that sounds overwhelming, that’s because it was. Booth after booth, floor after floor, I took in thousands of furniture and decor styles as they were introduced to the American market for the coming year. I’d liken it to a trip to IKEA, on a Sunday, during prime move-in season, but with a wider range of styles, price points and materials. However, if you look past the overstimulation of visuals and gargantuan feel of the IHFC (International Home Furnishings Center) building, there are definitely some perks to visiting the largest home show. The biggest one? You get a sneak peek of what will be in vogue for home decor in the coming year.
