A Singer/Songwriter's Dreamy Converted Barn Home on a Working Farm — House Tour

Name: Gregory Alan Isakov
Location: Boulder County, Colorado
Size: 2,250 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, owned

On three and a half acres just outside of Boulder, Colorado sits a working farm where vegetables grow on their vines, flowers sway gently in the breeze, and sheep graze. And, depending on the day, music may float along the wind. Singer/songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov’s music career has taken off in recent years—his latest record Evening Machines has gotten attention from publications like Rolling Stone and Paste—but his home and his recording studio remain on this small but beautiful farm. In fact, he schedules his tours around the seasons of his farm work, not the other way around.

A Dutch Instagram Star's Cozy Farmhouse Is a Labor of Love — House Tour

Name: Jellina Detmar, her husband Jan, their children Déjan and Melin
Location: Kollum, the Netherlands
Size: 2,422 square feet
Years lived in: 1.5 years, owned

It’s hard to believe Jellina and her family moved to this old farmhouse a mere one and a half years ago. The former residents had created a drywall box within the house, concealing many of the home’s beautiful elements like the big wooden beams. She and her husband Jan really wanted to let these original features shine, so they had to strip everything bare before they could start building up again. An immense amount of work, especially since they do most of it themselves. Luckily, Jan is extremely handy and has a part-time job in the concrete business (that gives him more time to renovate their home). Jellina is a physical therapist, but in her off hours she loves to style and photograph their interior. Together, this couple is a force of nature and the farmhouse— built in 1668—is rapidly transforming into the cozy home of their dreams.

Move Over Chip and Jo — This Georgia House Wins Farmhouse Chic — House Tour

Name: Laura Gibson and family
Location: Sharpsburg, Georgia
Size: 1,500 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

No matter whether you’re personally a fan of farmhouse chic style or not, you have to hand it to Laura Gibson: She’s a woman (and blogger) with a distinct style. And an attention to detail that customizes every inch of a plain home. The house she shares with her family didn’t start out this way three years ago; it’s taken a lot of DIY projects—from knocking out walls to even converting a garage into a living room—to transform this former rental space into the industrial farmhouse home of Laura’s dreams. It’s not completely finished yet (are homes ever really finished, though), but it sure has come a long way from where it started.

A Converted Commercial Loading Dock Turned Modern Home — House Tour

Name: Jasmine Waheed and cat Barney
Location: Garment District — Montreal
Size: 1,500 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years, 8 months, owned

After traveling across—and falling in love with—Canada, Jasmine Waheed decided to move from London to Montreal 15 years ago. Her background is in graphic design, but upon arriving in Montreal, she decided to make the switch to photography. “When I moved to Montreal I discovered that the way design agencies work here was very different to how it worked in London,” she reveals. “The design circuit here is much smaller and not as specialized as it is in London. I was fortunate enough not to have had to work for the first few years that I moved here, so I decided to diversify my photography, maintaining the music event photography that I enjoy, but moving into photographing food more than portraiture in recent years. I still do some design work but really only for the underground electronic music scene that I am involved in.”

A Fashion Blogger's "Warm Industrial" Buenos Aires Home — House Tour Greatest Hit

Name: Jana, Mariano and their children Phadi and Christ
Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Size: 2,200 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, owned


This tour deserves a long look because Jana is a fashion blogger and costume designer whose personal style and philosophies are inspiring. But her home is also a decor unicorn: It’s gorgeous and aesthetically pleasing, but also a mashup of unique and unexpected elements that exemplifies just how amazing it is when you design a home that fits your personality…without worrying about trends.
— Adrienne B.


Five years ago Jana and her husband bought a property containing three little houses with plans of turning them into one big home for their family. But then their architect told them that the buildings were in no condition to be saved, so the way forward was to tear them down and start building from scratch.
