A Florida Rental House Is "Bohemian Vintage Swamp Chic" — House Tour

Name: Kaitlyn McGowan and Evan Walker
Location: Downtown Gainesville, Florida
Size: 1,400 square feet
Years Lived In: 16 months, renting

Our home is a 1930s-ish converted duplex that I share with my partner of four years, Evan, and our cat, Rasputin, or Poots as we call him. Located downtown in a college town, our place has seen some interesting, fun, and scary renters. Two years before we rented it, we toured it, and the house was filled with graffiti scribbled on the walls, knocked-out windows, and multiple five-gallon bongs in the living room. This got us some refinished floors and much needed updates, so that worked out nicely for us.

A Textile Designer's Modern Colonial Is Incredibly Cheery — House Tour

Name: Erin Flett and family
Location: Gorham, Maine
Size: 2,400 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

We found an open lot in the middle of an established neighborhood in Gorham, Maine, and instantly fell in love. It was almost four acres, half-wooded, and half-open and flat. We decided to build a traditional colonial while keeping the details extremely modest, simple, and understated with a ton of white space with clean line finishes from the baseboards to the doors, kitchen cabinets and shelves. I love the simplicity of white on white and using found galvanized vintage industrial lighting, as well as vintage milk glass as much as possible and bringing in pops of color from found vintage art, small pieces of furniture, and my own hand-drawn, hand-silk screened textiles to help bring it together. My favorite two areas in and around our home is my giant yellow barn door I found on Craigslist that we incorporated for my home studio and my recycled granite curbing walls for my perennial garden with recycled Portland, Maine, cobble stone.

When my husband Ryan and I were looking for our first house, we were looking exclusively at fixer uppers. I’m an interior designer, so I’m very particular about my house looking how I want, and I didn’t want to pay a premium for someone else’s tastes and renovations that I didn’t even like!

It was the second-to-last last day of Wesley Janssen’s maternity leave when a “for sale” sign in front of a stately raised-basement Art and Crafts style home caught her eye five years ago. The real estate listing only had one picture, but the price was surprisingly low for the neighborhood. Although she and her husband Levi weren’t actively searching for a new home, Wesley’s instincts told her she needed to get inside and check it out.
