A Maximalist, Layered Lounge in Oakland — House Tour

Name: Kristin Peters and Corey McLaughlin, cats Gracie and Zoey
Location: Redwood Heights — Oakland, California
Size: 1,500 square feet
Years lived in: 13 years, owned

When Kristin and Corey first looked at their Oakland home when it was on the market, they walked away from it. Kristin fell in love with the living room views, but Corey couldn’t get past the ugly facade and outdated design. When the house kept popping up in their searches (but with a lower price), they agree to take another look. This time, they realized that the bones and structure of the home were in good condition — it just needed a dramatic face-lift. Kristin had a vision of how she could make it a lovely home for the couple, and since she loves a challenge, they dove right in.

An Innkeeper’s Impossibly Dreamy Attic Apartment in New Orleans — House Tour

Name: Melinda McSpadden
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.

A Newly Remodeled, Maximalist Philadelphia Home — House Tour

Name: Rachael, Rob and Frankie Wetherington + Liza Minnelli the Cat
Location: East Kensington — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Size: 1,600 square feet
Years Lived In: 5 years, owned

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica}

Rachael and Rob’s first house wasn’t their “dream home” when they bought it five years ago, right before their wedding. But with a giant yard in the city and an open floor plan on a corner in a neighborhood they loved, it had enough potential to be pretty darn close. The biggest issue was it needed work after sitting vacant for a few years. A longtime friend of the couple, Will Stichter of HYMY Industries , helped remodel their open-air kitchen to be the entertaining oasis it is now. And after two years of work — and a cabinet or two falling off the wall (breaking every piece of china they owned) — the remodel was finished. What started out as a not-quite-a-dream-home is now a dreamy home perfect for the couple and their young daughter Frankie.

Their brand-new book, Prints Charming by Madcap Cottage: Create Absolutely Beautiful Interiors with Prints & Patterns , is destined to be the go-to for inspiration on adding layers and layers of color and pattern to a home.

Location: Brisbane, Australia
Size: 1345 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, owned

Christopher — a talented interior designer — was destined to have a beautiful home, whatever space he ended up in. But what’s so lovely about this place is that it’s a reflection of his style, and also a reaction to the bones of the home he bought five years ago.

Pinks & Metallics Fill a Musician’s Unconventional Apartment — House Tour

Name: Peter Venuto
Location: The Plateau — Montreal, Quebec
Size: 1,500 square feet
Years lived in: 4 years, renting

Peter Venuto’s apartment was originally an Airbnb rental — which Peter himself once rented — but after the landlord grew tired of that setup, Peter managed to work out a deal with him and rent it as a “normal” living space. Today, the apartment showcases bright pink colors, metallic walls, and lots and lots of synthesizers. Peter Venuto’s apartment is not your typical home, but that’s what he loves about it.

An Eclectic 1910 Portland Home Decorated From Scratch — House Tour

Name: Lisa Zigarmi and Paul Del Vecchio , and French Bulldogs Luna and Boom
Location: Hollywood District — Portland, Oregon
Size: 3,290 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

Lisa and Paul met and fell in love in New York City, and when they made the decision to relocate to Portland three years ago, their biggest challenge was starting from scratch. The couple brought hardly more than their bed and a sofa from their previous home to their new Portland digs. “We wanted our new home to feel layered from multiple sources,” Lisa says. “It was hard to get settled, while not buying furniture from one store.”
