A Low-Light Apartment Has 'Secluded Little Cabin' Vibes — House Tour

Name: Adrianne Herold (and my fiance Dylan and our cat, Scavenger)
Location: Champaign, Illinois
Size: 1,005 square feet
Years Lived In: 1 year, renting

We actually lived across the parking lot in the same complex but in a two-bedroom and one day I noticed them ripping carpet out of some units and replacing it with wood paneling. I quickly asked our landlord if we could just transfer our lease to one of the updated units and she actually let us do it! We decided to go with a three-bedroom so I could have a room just for my photography. We’ve been in this unit for just about a year now and this wood grain has honestly helped my interior style flourish so much more! (If only you could see how much has changed!)

Years lived in: 1/2 year, renting

Haley Lertola owns an event planning and design company, Detroit Cultivated, where she’s “committed to disrupting the Detroit event industry by creating inspired experiences that incorporate sustainable practices. One of the goals of each event is to transport guests to a truly original setting. In late 2016 we planned a dinner party for a corporate client in the two original Quonset huts.

A Menswear Designer's Sophisticated, Small Brooklyn Studio — House Tour

Name: Thomas Finney
Location: Fort Greene — Brooklyn, NY
Size: 400 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, renting

When Thomas moved into his studio three years ago, functionality and style were his primary concerns. “This is the first place I’ve actually invested in. Before, I just had IKEA everything.” Despite its proximity to a grade school playground (literally across the street) and shop-lined Brooklyn streets, thanks to Thomas’ signature style, the space captures the coziness of a log cabin.

A Warm, Cozy Cabin Will Make You Want to Move to the Woods — House Tour

Name: Jake Levin
Location: Big Bear, California
Size: 972 square feet
Years lived in: 2.5 years, owned

I found this cabin after being frustrated with the out-of-reach housing market in Los Angeles, where I live and work full-time as an Art Director/Graphic Designer. One day I started looking at places in Big Bear, just a two-hour drive from the city, when I realized wait a minute, I might be actually able to do this. I figured if I could break even renting it out and have a place to get away on some weekends it would be amazing, but I never could’ve imagined how this little cabin would change my life.
