The Beautiful Brownstone of New York Magazine's Wendy Goodman — House Tour

Name: Wendy Goodman
Location: Greenwich Village — New York, New York
Years lived in: 1997-present

Wendy Goodman’s New York apartment feels particularly storied, and not just because it’s full of books. A born and raised New Yorker, she’s called this Greenwich Village apartment home for 20 years, and it shows — her place has that layered, easy feel that homes that have been lived in, and loved, for many years begin to take on.

An Eclectic Chicago Reno Is Effortlessly Elegant — House Tour

Name: Kira Cole and two cats
Location: Gold Coast — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,080 square feet
Years Lived In: 8 months, owned

My home was built in 1892, originally as a single family. In 1978, it was renovated into condo units. I actually grew up in the unit below, so I was very familiar with the building and neighbors when purchasing! When I first got my hands on it, it had not been renovated (not even paint touch-ups) since the 1978 renovation, so it was in serious need of love. I was inspired by the high ceilings and what was left of the original crown molding and trim. Currently, I live there with my two cats (who love racing down the hall) and am frequently visited by my family who continues to live in the unit below me.

A Low-Light Apartment Has 'Secluded Little Cabin' Vibes — House Tour

Name: Adrianne Herold (and my fiance Dylan and our cat, Scavenger)
Location: Champaign, Illinois
Size: 1,005 square feet
Years Lived In: 1 year, renting

We actually lived across the parking lot in the same complex but in a two-bedroom and one day I noticed them ripping carpet out of some units and replacing it with wood paneling. I quickly asked our landlord if we could just transfer our lease to one of the updated units and she actually let us do it! We decided to go with a three-bedroom so I could have a room just for my photography. We’ve been in this unit for just about a year now and this wood grain has honestly helped my interior style flourish so much more! (If only you could see how much has changed!)

A Small and Minimal Apartment in San Francisco — House Tour

Name: Erin Roberts and husband Neeraj
Location: San Francisco, California
Size: 440 square feet
Years Lived In: 2 years, rental

My husband and I spent two years lovingly collecting heirlooms and designer pieces that make us happy—from pieces that were long sought after to ones that were serendipitously found shopping during our travels. With the small square footage, taking a minimalist design approach works well both for our aesthetic and our space requirements, where clutter is often revisited and let go and each new piece brings life and love to our tiny abode. Inspired by Australian and Japanese design with a little California desert mixed in, we went for a natural, relaxing, minimalist aesthetic with low profiles and warm desert colors. Many pieces featured are favorites from local stores like Field Theory, Super Simple, Stuff Vintage, and Black & Gold, as well as artwork from up-and-coming artists all over the world.

This Afro-Bohemian Loft Is an Energetic Explosion of Color — House Tour

Name: Cherub Stewart of Florida Water Interiors and her daughter
Location: The Lincoln Park District — Newark, New Jersey
Size: 1,200 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, renting

It hasn’t even been a year in my magical loft, yet it feels like so much time has passed. Time certainly flies when you are blissed out. I happened upon this restored garage space on Zillow, of all places, at a difficult time in my life where my little one was only 9 months old and her father and I decided to live in different homes. We are great, absolutely dear friends and parted amicably, yet it was challenging moving with a baby, and I was not ready to live alone with child. I truly wanted a place that felt, warm, welcoming, had lots of character and space for a growing child, was safe, yet would accommodate my budget!

A Painter's Modern Loft Is Light-Filled and Dreamy — House Tour

Name: Lysa Jordan, Sergio Castano and dog Walter
Location: Montreal, Quebec
Size: 1,100 square feet
Years lived in: 6 months, renting

Artist Lysa Jordan and architect Sergio Castano live with their dog Walter in a working and living loft nestled in the Saint Henri neighborhood. Quite unconventional from typical Montreal apartments, their pad is a modern, minimal, and creative space for both of them. “It’s a stimulating and inspiring place. The light is abundant throughout the day and I’ve got all I need at hand to paint at any time. I can relax as much as concentrate for work.” Her abstract paintings are made with a selection of acrylics, oil pastels, and inks, expressing a balance between fullness and emptiness and directed by an emotion of tranquility. With the impressive windows and soothing artwork carefully displayed, one feels easily at home here.

A Classic Chicago Loft Ready for Christmas — House Tour

Name: A couple and their schnauzer/poodle mix
Location: Ukrainian Village — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,600 sq ft
Years lived in: 2 years, owned

These two had to do a lot of work after purchasing this space. The chain smoking previous owner had been there for years and the loft was covered in (stinky) carpet. Ceiling ducts 12 feet off the ground were a grimy, salmon color and in an overall unattractive state. [Editor’s note: This tour is a rerun from last year because it’s just decorated so cheerfully for the holidays!]
