A Fun Swedish Home Has a Pink Kitchen and an Indoor Skate Ramp — House Tour

Name: Christin Haussman, my husband Lars, with our two kids Calle and Emma.
Location: Upplands Väsby — North of Stockholm, Sweden
Size: 2,000 square feet
Years Lived In: Myself 4 years, the hubby 12 years, owned

I am originally from Germany but have lived in England and Scotland, until moving to Sweden five years ago. Sweden is a bit of an outdoorsy-type country, so I was like let’s start a new hobby! I started skateboarding, because well, that just always looked real fun, right? Long story short, eventually I met my now-husband, Lars and his son Calle. Making another long story short—with a few years on and a baby added in the mix and a spontaneous elopement in Las Vegas—we are living a fun, not always easy, but exciting patchwork-family life.

A Rental Home's Made Personal with Color and Culture — House Tour

Name: Shehar Bano Rizvi and Mohsin Mujtaba Rizvi and three kids
Location: Doha, Qatar
Size: 5,000 square feet
Years Lived In: 1.5 years, renting

It’s not just this home’s size that’s impressive; I was struck by how much Shehar—a lifestyle blogger and photographer—was able to take a fairly beige rental house and turn it into a personal space for her and her family. The rich jewel tones she’s used throughout as accent colors are inspiration for those looking to add more color to their home’s palette. And she’s deftly mixed a surprisingly robust amount of IKEA furniture in with other purchases (as well as family antiques) to create a high-end look. Though this home is a lot larger in size than what many of us live in, it holds a lot of inspiration inside, and I enjoyed getting to see into a home from this part of the world.

A Minimal and Modern Amsterdam Houseboat Is Dreamy — House Tour

Name: Annelies, Hans, their son Scott and Harry the dog
Location: Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Size: 1,507 square feet
Years lived in: 7 years, owned

Born and bred on a houseboat, Annelies has lived on the water practically her whole life. She and her husband Hans had a brief stint of living in a conventional house, but after a year and a half living on land, a great opportunity popped up that they couldn’t resist: a mooring spot became available a stone’s throw away from where Annelies spent her childhood. Eager to build their own house, the couple jumped at this unique chance. The location is fantastic — since the water is right behind a levee it’s very quiet, and yet it’s merely a 10-minute bike ride to the center of Amsterdam.
