Vintage Collectors Embrace Slower Living in a Mid-Century Cottage — House Tour

Name: Rob & Evelyn Stewart
Location: Washago — Ontario, Canada
Size: 1,100 square feet (plus a 350-square-foot bunkie)
Years lived in: 9 years, owned

Thirty years ago, Rob and Evelyn decided to move from the city to Muskoka, a desirable cottage town in Ontario to raise their kids. Now, they’re semi-retired and their kids are grown up, so they’ve taken advantage of “slower living” in their quiet town. The home also has a bunkie cottage (also known as a micro house) on the property, which isn’t short of style or spectacular antiques. The bunkie, which was built in 1959, was updated in 2011 to host friends and family.

A Modern Glam Tribeca Apartment — House Tour

Name: Kalyn and Todd Chandler
Location: Tribeca — New York, NY
Size: 1,700 square feet
Years lived in: 10 years, owned

When Kalyn moved into her now-husband Todd’s apartment, the two were practicing lawyers. Kalyn was unhappy with her busy career, so Todd encouraged her to pursue her passion for design. With that extra push, Kalyn’s brand Effie’s Paper — a fun and feminine stationery and gift company — was born. Like the brand, Kalyn and Todd’s home is filled with a touch of glamour in every corner: the entryway is covered in metallic wallpaper, the dining room is illuminated by ornate chandeliers, and sleek furniture and accents add a shine to the space.

A Cozy English Cottage in Illinois — House Tour

Name: Christine and Gabe Bridger , Emelia and Jenson
Location: Evanston, Illinois
Size: 3,000 square feet
Years lived in: 4 years, owned

During long summer walks, the Bridger family would peer into the windows of this 1920s cottage. When it finally became available, they purchased it without even stepping foot inside. The home was not period correct, nor was the space very functional, so they opened up every wall possible without losing the historic charm. During the renovation, the contractor team removed drywall in the kitchen and bathroom to deal with electrical issues. Upon seeing the beautiful brick behind the drywall, they made an “in the moment” decision to keep it (even with the possible heat loss and crumbling). They also used old bed posts for the kitchen island, barn wood as open shelving, and turned a bedroom into a charming sun room. This home was designed to be lived in and loved — it’s charming, cozy, and inviting.

Earlier this year we got to see an in-depth look at Dev Shah’s New York apartment — he’s the main character of Netflix’s hit show Master of None. What a unique, comfortable, accessible space the apartment’s set design portrays. It doesn’t really matter if the apartment is “real” or not; Dev’s home is filled with inspiration anyone could use. Well, in honor of Master of None’s Emmy wins last night, we thought we’d share another fabulous “home tour” of one of the show’s quirky characters.

Years lived in: Owned 3 months

I’m a photographer and the architect wanted the house to be a ‘museum of light’ so she intentionally had light enter every room a different way. Solar panels also help us save on our electric bill.”
