A Berlin Apartment Inspired by Queer History — House Tour

Name: Dean Sameshima
Location: Berlin, Germany
Size: 1,044 square feet
Years lived in: 10 years, renting

When Dean Sameshima came to Berlin in 2007 to put on an art show with Peres Project , he didn’t expect to stay put for so long. What started out as a one-month stay quickly became three months, and luckily, he found this gem of an apartment at the end of his trip. “I fell in love with the space immediately and feel grateful for it every single day,” Dean says of his apartment, which is located in a hip part of Kreuzberg full of good restaurants, large flea markets, and beautiful parks. But best of all, his apartment gets of a ton of light and provides him with plenty of space for his queer art collection, silk screening supplies, and his sizable menagerie of plants (though he could always use more).

A “Folk Modern” Apartment With Urban Cabin Vibes — House Tour

Name: Steven Miller
Location: Los Angeles, California
Size: 750 square feet
Years lived in: 2.5 years, rented

Everything in Steven’s apartment has a story behind it: He can recall the thrift store each piece of art came from and can tell you the lengths he went to find a unique piece of furniture. “It makes me so happy that I have a space for all of the things that I’ve thrifted or collected,” he says. For Steven, thrifting isn’t just a hobby. “I’ve always fantasized about a road trip where I can thrift my way up the West Coast to the Pacific Northwest and meander through all of those small towns that you never knew were there — with a trailer for all of my finds, of course!” All of that digging has turned his apartment into a welcoming space full of eccentric art and unique knick-knacks, and he’s more than happy to tell you all about ’em.

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.
