BuzzFeed Life Editorial Director Peggy Wang's Queens Home Is a Vision in Blue — House Tour

Name: Peggy Wang
Location: Ridgewood, Queens
Size: 1100 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

A few years ago, I kinda just woke up one day and decided that I didn’t want to live in a tiny apartment anymore. It was like a weird sudden existential outburst in my usual lazy put-everything-off-forever mindset. My boyfriend’s friend happened to be looking to buy a two-family house, which is what planted the idea in my head. It took about eight months between that day I had the epiphany to the day I closed on the house.

Survey Says This is the Grossest Thing You Can Have in Your Kitchen

I’m not swayed by inner satisfaction or the captivating sparkle of a spotless countertop. No—my main motivation for cleaning my space is almost always making sure that the people who see it don’t think I’m gross. (Even if those people are just the UPS guy and my local Thai place’s delivery driver.) I know I’m not alone, so I think all of us would appreciate the results of a recent study which discovered the things about our homes that are most likely to turn off potential guests.

New Study Says NYC Has ‘Teflon’ Mice, And Here’s Why That’s Terrifying

Here is an entirely true story about my first week in my NYC studio.

I was cleaning the kitchen (because I am a certified grown-up), and I got out the vacuum to get the nooks and crannies beneath the dishwasher and cabinets. Before moving in, I had gone a full year without experiencing more than a spider in my living quarters and I was not going to entice any new friends with crumbs from my Cheerio-based dinner. As I moved the vacuum under the stove, it caught something. I pulled and got the corner of a sticky piece of paper that was home to about 500 dead roaches.

In the orchard during the growing season, our flock of sheep and lambs graze and rest, graze and sleep. Just outside my basement studio door, I grow a large flower and veggie garden.
