This Santa Cruz Apartment Transformed into a Vibrant Sanctuary — House Tour

Name: Lilly Giraldo
Location: Seabright — Santa Cruz, California
Size: 900 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, renting

I currently live in a two-bedroom apartment in the Seabright neighborhood of Santa Cruz. I moved to Santa Cruz fresh out of college and I remember thinking, “When I grow up I want to live in Seabright,” and 20 years later (and after kind of growing up), I found this lovely apartment. I’m within walking distance of the beach and I can hear the waves crashing late at night.

A Magical Attic Apartment with a "Genie Bottle Bedroom" — House Tour

Name: Terra Zosel
Location: Kenwood Neighborhood, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Size: 800 square feet
Years lived in: Rented 6 months

The story of Terra’s apartment is multi-fold. Her home occupies the attic of her grandparents’ house where she lives as caretaker to her grandmother. Her grandparents purchased the home in the 1960s from a couple who relocated from Minneapolis to the significantly warmer state of Florida. Little information is known about those earlier owners or what the “genie bottle” room was used for, but Terra does know that it remained largely untouched from how the former resident — an artist — left it.

21 of the Most Beautiful Bohemian Style Home Designs

You can find definitions of Bohemian style decor online. They’re described as spaces filled with lots of plants, colors, patterns, rattan, and stuff. You can even take online quizzes to see if “Bohemian” style is for you. But while all of these adjectives are technically true, boho decor has always been a “I know it when I see it” sort of style for me. While “boho” can certainly refer to a set of design elements mixed together, to me, it’s much more of a description of the energy that a space can exude.

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.
