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.

A Textile Designer's Layered, India-Inspired Home — House Tour

Name: Deepali and Naveen Kalia, Annika, 8 and Akhil, 2
Location: Hillsboro, Oregon
Size: 1,800 square feet
Years lived in: 12 years, owned

Deepali and Naveen began their life together in a traditionally Indian way — through an arranged marriage. She had just finished studying fashion design in India at NIFT, and moved to Oregon to join Naveen who works at Intel. She didn’t know anyone and wasn’t working, so she started making things: “I was dying of boredom, I had to do something…I was making artwork and upholstering furniture pieces. I had some friends in the silk business, and I got silk samples from them, and started making pillows and curtains. One thing led to another, and then I opened my shop.”

An Envy-Inducing, Boho Glam RV Renovation — House Tour

Name: Liz and Tim Kamarul, with pups Bo and Cudi
Location: New Orleans, Louisiana
Size: 176 square feet
Years Lived In: 5 months, owned

I find it incredibly inspiring when people shirk off their worldly possessions, say no to the 9 to 5, and trade a rent check for a home on wheels. And while the breathtaking natural landscapes you can see behind these vans, Airstreams and trailers on Instagram are stunning, it’s fairly unusual when the interior of a mobile home is elevated beyond just functional. Rarer still when your home is only a few square feet and lacks a foundation.
