Name: Caroline Harper Knapp, her husband, and their sons, Knox and Andrew
Location: Briargrove — Houston, Texas
Size: 2,500 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

When Caroline Harper Knapp moved back to her home state of Texas a few years ago from New York, she knew she would have more space to design a home for her and her family. Having almost 2,500 square feet to work with meant she would get to experiment with traditional home elements that the lack of space in New York had not allowed her to — like a large entryway, a formal dining room, and a living room that offers several seating options.

A Classic Glam Apartment in Italy Designed on a Budget — House Tour

Name: Marci and Carlos Cordero, with children Penelope and Mitchell
Location: Vicenza, Italy
Size: 2,150 square feet
Years lived in: 5 months, renting

Marci and Carlos have only lived in their Italian apartment for five months, but you’d never know it from looking around. There are photos and art hung (even with the stubborn concrete walls!) and every piece of furniture seems to fit into place and have a home. This could be because of Marci’s philosophy of being incredibly intentional with bringing things into her home, or because they’re a military family and pros at moving by now.

A First-Time Homebuyer's "Glam-ohemian" Charlotte House — House Tour

Name: Seana
Location: Charlotte, North Carolina
Size: 2,600 square feet
Years lived in: Own. I am a first-time home owner!

Seana does not claim to be a design expert, but she could have fooled us. As a corporate professional she spends her days in a more formal atmosphere, so her first house provides a unique canvas to express her creativity. Reluctantly labeling her style “Glamohemian,” she describes herself as a “modern bohemian with a touch of glamour” while rolling her eyes at herself. Seana’s home reflects an eclectic collection of influences that are very dear to her; her has family roots in Louisiana and she spent fifteen years in Brooklyn. Artifacts on display also illustrate her love and passion for hip hop and the African diaspora, as well as several “nerdy interests” and her “lifelong obsession with fashion.”

When interior designer Dominic submitted his House Call, many of you proclaimed that you couldn’t believe it was a rental.

Size: 1,700 square feet
Years lived in: 10 years, owned

When Kalyn moved into her now-husband Todd’s apartment, the two were practicing lawyers. Kalyn was unhappy with her busy career, so Todd encouraged her to pursue her passion for design. With that extra push, Kalyn’s brand Effie’s Paper — a fun and feminine stationery and gift company — was born. Like the brand, Kalyn and Todd’s home is filled with a touch of glamour in every corner: the entryway is covered in metallic wallpaper, the dining room is illuminated by ornate chandeliers, and sleek furniture and accents add a shine to the space.
