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.

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.
