Three Roommates Share a Small Attic Apartment in Oakland — House Tour

Name: Helen , David and Nami (plus their cats Boogie and Sammie)
Location: Lower Bottoms — Oakland, California
Size: ~600 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years

Helen, David and Nami live in a two-bedroom attic apartment in a historic mansion that was converted to apartments. The space has its perks, such as the walls painted yellow (Helen’s favorite color) and its convenience to downtown Oakland and public transit. But the awkward attic space also has its drawbacks: small windows resulting in low light, weird ceilings angles, and a tiny kitchen. Despite that, the three roommates admit that its awkwardness has made coming up with solutions a fun challenge.

A “Modern Bohemia Meets West Coast” Apartment in Oakland — House Tour

Name: Jimmy Brower , Damien Merino , and their dog Joey
Location: Gaskill — Oakland, California
Size: 700 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years, renting

Jimmy and Damien instantly fell in love with their Oakland apartment. The bond was so strong that they signed the lease before they even looked inside. Risky — yes — but they don’t regret a thing about the decision, as they find themselves drawn to the natural energy of the space more and more each day. The apartment used to be a storefront, so it comes with huge floor-to-ceiling windows, warm wood tones, and slate concrete floors. How can anyone not fall for the space?

A “Feminist Witch Cottage” in Toronto — House Tour

Name: Terra Loire
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Size: 700 square feet
Years lived in: 8 months, renting

After living in nine different spaces over the past eight years, Terra finally feels like she has found a home in her mid-town Toronto apartment. She’s definitely had her tour of living all over the city — east to west, centrally and along the lakeshore — experiencing many of Toronto’s diverse neighborhoods. Though there is a certain appeal to living in a trendy or a more centrally located area, the reality of high rent prices and basement apartments just wasn’t cutting it for her emotionally anymore. Home to her 30 plus plants and curious Siamese cat, Pyewacket, Terra has cultivated a deep sense of comfort and peace within her new space.

The Brooklyn Apartment Where Style & Function Are Equally Weighed — Why It Works

We’ve all heard it before: small but mighty, tiny house = big style. But, in this petite stunner it was all about lifestyle taking precedence over every design decision, which left this city dweller even foregoing a conventional sofa. The Williamsburg apartment belonging to Sarah Ashley Schiear , chef and founder of Salt House , is a strong lesson in style and function conveyed in just 635 square feet. For Sarah, keeping her priorities top of mind and not letting her space dictate what worked for her really netted beautiful results. Let’s breakdown her design notes.

A 325-Square-Foot West Village Studio Feels Much Larger Than It Is — House Tour

Name: Jennifer Pade
Location: West Village, New York, New York
Size: 325 square feet
Years lived in: 17 years

You may know Jennifer’s apartment from her Renovation Diary , where we chronicled the transformation of her tiny kitchen from a crumbling disaster to a sleek, modern space. After all the dust settled, Jennifer graciously invited us back to get a look at the rest of her space. It’s quite small, but, like her kitchen, Jennifer’s apartment is beautifully and thoughtfully designed, giving it a spaciousness that belies its small footprint.

A “Golden Girls” Meets “Mary Tyler Moore” Chicago Apartment — House Tour

Name: Bridget McCullagh
Location: Lakeview — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 750 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, renting

If Mary Tyler Moore moved in with the Golden Girls, their home might look something like Bridget’s vintage-inspired Chicago apartment. “I love the natural wood and plant-heavy look of the 1970s,” she says. Luckily, Bridget inherited a lot of decor and furniture from her mother and grandmother. These elements play right into her retro style and make her apartment feel a bit like a time capsule!
