Author Amy Stewart Says Goodbye to Her California Victorian — House Tour

Name: Amy Stewart and Scott Brown
Location: Eureka, California
Size: 2800 square feet
Years Lived In: 17 years; own (well, we used to own it. We just sold the house and we’re moving to Portland.)

Amy and Scott are downsizing and making the move to Oregon. “The new condo in Portland is cool, but it’s not 110 years old,” wrote Amy. To help with the farewells, she took pen (and watercolor) to paper to illustrate her favorite elements to this house. “The sketchbook is SUCH therapy. I don’t know if I will ever get over this house. I question my sanity every day for leaving such a gorgeous home.”

He convinced his landlord to refinish the bathtub before he moved in, he painted or wallpapered every wall in the place, and he even had a custom faux fireplace/TV enclosure built for the living room.

Take Back Your Space: Conquering a Monster of a Messy Closet — Video from Apartment Therapy

Kristen had nothing magical living under her stairs (certainly no wizards). While she appreciated having this extra storage space, it had devolved into the dumping-est of dumping grounds. When she contacted us for closet help she described it as “where I store random items I have nowhere else to put”. Watch above as it “magically” transforms from chaos to order.
