A First-Time Studio Dweller’s Crafty 400-Square-Foot Home — House Tour

Name: Emily Krutz
Location: Lincoln Park — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 400 square feet
Years lived in: 8 months, renting

When asked about the limitations of entertaining in her 400-square-foot Lincoln Park studio, Emily Krutz just shrugs, “None really. I’m actually going to be hosting brunch here later today.” That easygoing attitude is how she managed to create a very amenable kitchen, living room, dining room (albeit, an intimate one), and bedroom out of one single small room.

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!

A 1950s Chicago Home’s Ever-Evolving Renovation — House Tour

Name: Carly and Brad Moeller
Location: Ravenswood Manor — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,800 square feet
Years lived in: 3.5 years, owned

For all you design-loving storage fanatics, this home is for you. Carly and Brad each have architectural backgrounds, and they were able to bring style and function to their 1950s Chicago home when they updated it. (Like a bold color palette that creates a playful atmosphere in every room.) But their very favorite part of the house is the custom-designed, three-sided, built-in wall of cabinets that divides the living area and kitchen on their first floor. Carly says, “It’s the best thing we did in the renovation and one of the things that truly brings me joy daily, and not just because it’s filled with booze. Although that helps.”

A Sophisticated, Remodeled Chicago Loft in a Former Factory — House Tour

Name: Kristin Schleiter, Nathan Dylan Hess, and Addison (a schnauzer/poodle mix)
Location: Ukrainian Village — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,600 square feet
Years lived in: 10 months, owned

Kristin and Nathan haven’t been in their loft for long, but it sure doesn’t show. Especially impressive when you learn how much work they had to do after purchasing the space. The chain smoking previous owner had been there for years and the loft was covered in (stinky) carpet. Ceiling ducts 12 feet off the ground were a grimy, salmon color and in an overall unattractive state. Luckily Kristin and Nathan were able to see the space’s potential and quickly made it their own. After a lot of hard work in the master bathroom and the kitchen, after closing off the guest room, and after adding a few DIY sliding doors, the loft is ready for the couple’s next chapter.

An Incredibly Colorful “Modern Nerd Chic” Chicago Home — House Tour

Name: James Conley and Kurt Heinrich
Location: Rogers Park — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 2,000 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, owned

A lot can happen in a year. Last summer, just a few weeks after closing on this home and a few days before their wedding, James and Kurt’s kitchen and bathrooms were demolished for renovation (and therefore not in working order.) But that didn’t stop them from celebrating their love. The couple quickly painted the living room, gathered friends and family, and were married in their living room right in front of this fireplace.
