This Brooklyn Loft Has the Most Inventive Use of an IKEA Tabletop — House Tour

Name: Bryan Sears
Location: Brooklyn, New York
Size: 1,200 square feet
Years Lived In: 9 years, renting

Artist, designer, and entrepreneur Bryan Sears lives a creative life, and the large loft-like space he rents in Brooklyn reflects that. Full of light, great art, and lots of plants, the industrial architecture of the building is a warm backdrop to all of his things. It’s also a testament to the power of a free find. In Bryan’s building, there’s a location where people leave things they think others might want… the “Freeshelf.” Quite a few of the items in this home share an origin of the freeshelf. Those items, mixed in with Bryan’s art, make for one very unique home.

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.
