See This Photographer's Total Apartment Decor Overhaul — House Tour

Name: Elizabeth Podlesnik
Location: Queen Anne — Seattle, Washington
Size: 900 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, renting

Back in June, this former personal stylist-turned-photographer got an itch to redecorate. Like, seriously redecorate. “I sold everything on Craigslist and Offer Up, and started from scratch,” Elizabeth told me. I was slightly jealous of the adventure she’d just been on. From scratch, you say? Swoon. I really do have a thing for blank slates. Over the course of the next several months, Elizabeth made regular visits to a huge consignment store in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood for interesting pieces, surfed Amazon more often than her friends feel is reasonable, and splurged on items she knew she wanted to last. More importantly, she took her time. She’d only finished putting the final touches on it about a week before I came to snap pics—or, that morning, if you count the fresh flowers she dashed out to get last minute.

An Animator's Seattle Cottage Is Sun-Filled and Charming — House Tour

Name: Joe Gast and Willow the Weimaraner
Location: Leschi — Seattle, Washington
Size: 1,690 square feet
Years lived in: 25 years, owned

My 1908 Leschi cottage was a victim of several ill-conceived remodels and plenty of deferred maintenance. A transplant from Ohio, with an Ohioan’s modest budget, I purchased the house because it was in my price range and it was located on a magical stairway, steps above Lake Washington.

Location: Roosevelt — Seattle, Washington
Size: 1,800 square feet
Years lived in: 2.5 years, owned

When Hayley Francis set out in search of her dream home in Seattle during the summer of 2015, she did so toting a wishlist of charming must-haves: checkerboard black and white tile floors in the kitchen, hardwoods throughout, and a classic Craftsman style. And, in the midst of a rapidly rising and highly competitive housing market, she was lucky enough to land a house in Seattle’s desirable Roosevelt neighborhood that checked off all of the boxes on her list— and then some! She had effectively hit the first-time homeowner’s jackpot.

Before she started decorating, Seattle homeowner Suki set out to create a space that felt like a vacation home, which worked out nicely for me since it was an especially gloomy day the afternoon I showed up to snap some pictures.

A Seattle Jewelry Designer's Paris-Inspired Studio — House Tour

Name: Kim
Location: Capitol Hill — Seattle, Washington
Size: 650 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, renting

Having great style kinda comes with the territory when you’re a successful jewelry maker (and the owner of a business like Fresh Tangerine), but Kim has a particular brand that you just don’t see very often. She describes her home’s look as quirky Parisian with some PNW cozy mixed in. And it’s so true! Her style is almost collage-like — pulling together a bunch of things she loves with meaning, and that also give off a welcoming warmth. The fact that these items resonate with her is what makes them go together as much as their color, shape, or style — criteria we usually put most of the focus on.

A Young Family's Cozy, Small Seattle Craftsman — House Tour

Name: Anna, Jason and Freddy
Location: Ballard — Seattle, Washington
Size: 600 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, owned

After buying their Seattle home five years ago, Anna and Jason spent about two years updating elements that likely hadn’t changed in decades — all new windows, refurbished kitchen counters, new paint throughout — and the list goes on. Then when they knew their little guy Freddy was on the way, another transformation of sorts had to happen: Making room for a new baby in a one-bedroom, 600-square foot house. Anna was inspired by a house tour she’d seen on Apartment Therapy that made living in a small space with a baby look not only doable, but stylish and beautiful.
