Location: Concord, New Hampshire
Size: 900 square feet
Years lived in: 4 years, own

“Everything is an excuse for art and color,” Arnie muses about her apartment, or as she calls it, her “pied-à-terre:” a 900-square-foot, open-concept living space on the attic story of a Victorian house in Concord. “As a young girl I always wanted to live in an old attic in a historic home or a Manhattan loft,” Arnie explains. “When I inherited this huge old Queen Anne from my aunt, the attic, with its widow’s walk, vaulted ceilings, and sloping walls was screaming: this is home!

But don’t let the personal elevator fool you into thinking this couple and their young son live in an expensively decorated home. Marcus and Alicia furnished their whole apartment for under $4000.
