An Artist’s Sophisticated Chicago Home — House Tour

Name: Josh Young and Ignacio Martinez
Location: Gold Coast — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,000 square feet
Years lived in: 7 months, renting

Josh and Ignacio have spent the last eight years living all over the world in cities like Milan (where the couple met while studying), Santiago, and New York. Ignacio was born in Tel Aviv and grew up in Concepción, Chile. Josh spent most of his growing up years in Pennsylvania and North Carolina. After moving to Chicago last spring, they knew they wanted their apartment to not only reflect and display the elements from where they had lived and traveled before, but also represent where they are as a couple today. They have always chosen to live in historic, pre-war apartments and always appreciated the elegance and charm of these buildings…and how well modern, modular furniture look within them.

A “Europe-Meets-California-Modern” LA Apartment — House Tour

Name: Danica and Robin
Location: Highland Park — Los Angeles, California
Size: 750 square feet
Years lived in: 4 months, rented

When Danica and Robin decided to move to Los Angeles from Oakland, their apartment search began with location in mind. Sure, it’d be nice to have a large space, but it wasn’t a priority — especially with a new baby and Los Angeles’ tight rental market. They ended up in the Highland Park neighborhood, and luckily, they were able to cross off a ton of amenities off their list: the apartment is clean and minimal, walking distance to fun destinations, and just right for the small family of three.

A Los Angeles Musician’s Colorful, Playful & Nerdy Apartment — House Tour

Name: Juan Velasquez
Location: Highland Park — Los Angeles, California
Size: 460 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, rented

About five years ago, the house Juan shared with two friends in Los Angeles’ Eagle Rock neighborhood was sold, forcing him to move out. That’s when he stumbled upon this current apartment in Highland Park. It was at the top of his budget, and as a punk musician and record store employee at the time, he says it was out of reach because he had terrible credit. But with some extra help from his mom as a co-signer, he was on his way to acquiring his first “grown-up” apartment.

Location: Garden District — New Orleans, Louisiana
Size: 1,300 square feet
Years lived in: 11 months; the apartment is one of the perks of being a live-in innkeeper

The setting for Melinda McSpadden’s life is dripping with Southern charm — lush greenery and a canopy of century-old oaks surround a Queen Anne-style mansion built in 1890 in the heart of New Orleans’ picturesque Garden District. On a summer morning, a ceiling fan turns lazily above rattan chairs on a wrap-around porch. The scene is just begging for someone to sit and sip a glass of ice-cold lemonade.
