Airstreams, Yurts & Cute Critters: A Modern Day “Green Acres” — Video House Tour

Name: Kirsten and Brandon Dickerson, plus their son and daughter
Location: Our homestead know as Green Acres Retreat, just east of Austin in Elgin, Texas
Size: 25 acres that includes our personal dwellings: a 1955 Spartan Mansion just under 350 square feet and a 1967 Overlander Airstream just under 180 square feet, as well as an open air vintage barn and Lotus Belle yurts for guests.
Years lived in: Full time living in both of the vintage trailers for 1.5 years

Just outside of the Austin city limits you will find the Dickerson family homestead they call “Green Acres .” You’ll find no shortage of wild life…deer, donkeys, alpacas, and all types of critters call these 25 acres home. The Dickerson family is spread out between two vintage trailers, one being a 1950s Spartan Trailer and the other a 1960s Airstream. Also among this vintage village is an out house, guest yurts, a fire-pit corral and a backyard communal barn.

A Shaker-Inspired, Hand-Built Vermont Farmhouse — House Tour

Name: Sarah Priestap-Porter and Jeffrey Porter . Our land-mates are Arlo (rescue mutt) and Glaumur (Icelandic Horse)
Location: Tunbridge, Vermont (Central Vermont, for y’all who have no idea where this is)
Size: 1620 square feet
Years Lived In: 1 year, owned

When I started dating Jeff back in 2009, one of the first things he told me was how his dream was to build a house for his family some day. It was college, and the time when everyone talked about big dreams, so I never took it seriously. After all, he was a photography major with a little woodworking experience at the time, not some experienced builder. It wasn’t until 2011 when we moved to Vermont and he began to apprentice with a timber-framer that I realized how real his dream may be.

The Bold & Beautiful Beverly Hills Home of the Founders of Too Faced Cosmetics — House Tour

Name: Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson , the co-founders of Too Faced Cosmetics , and their chihuahua, Clover
Location: Beverly Hills
Size: 2,121 square feet
Years Lived In: 2.5 years, owned

Too Faced Cosmetics —the cruelty-free global beauty and cosmetics brand started in 1998 and sold in over 30 countries—is known for its ability to not take makeup too seriously. Their “Better Than Sex” mascara is iconic with a cult-like following. They’re responsible for the world’s first glitter eye shadow . And frankly I appreciate any company that so freely uses puns in its product names (looking at you, “Chocolate Brow-nie “). And the Beverly Hills home shared by the company’s married co-founders Jeremy Johnson (CEO/Action Man) and Jerrod Blandino (Chief Creative Officer/Dreamer) is as similarly rebellious, tongue-in-cheek and colorful as the company they helm.

A Couple & Three Dogs Share a 200-Square-Foot “Bitty Berkeley Bungalow” — House Tour

Name: Rebekah Carey , husband Alex, and 3 pups!
Location: Berkeley, California
Size: 200 square feet
Years lived in: 2.5 years, owned

Rebekah and Alex (plus their three dogs!) share a 200-square-foot converted 1905 garage they’ve lived in for nearly two and a half years. Though they’re both native to Oregon state, they’ve lived in the Bay Area at different points in their lives and always felt a connection to Berkeley. When they realized the garage in Rebekah’s grandma’s backyard wasn’t being put to much use, they asked themselves (and grandma, of course) if it had the potential to become a home. Months later, they embarked on their most laborious DIY project ever, but as Rebekah says, “The best things come to those who wait.”

A Colorful, Thrifty Toronto Home — House Tour

Name: Catherine Cachia and Lionel McDonald, their daughter, Winnie, and Griffey the dog
Location: East Danforth — Toronto, Ontario
Size: Approximately 1,000 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years; Owned

Instagram and mid-century modern couches brought Catherine and I together. Last summer, she left a comment on one of my pictures saying we had the exact same couch. I thought that was a big coincidence for a considerably vintage piece of furniture. Was she also in Ontario? I headed over to her bio and found out, to my delight, that she lived in Toronto. A quick look at Catherine’s profile and I was convinced: This East Danforth home was definitely House Tour material.

A “Scandi with a South African Twist” Style Home — House Tour

Name: Ivonne Meyer
Location: Woodstock — Cape Town, South Africa
Size: 1,550 square feet
Years lived in: 10 years, owned

After many years of renting a bedroom in this very house, Ivonne luckily had the opportunity to purchase the property when her friend relocated to Namibia and needed to sell. With no furniture of her own to begin with, Ivonne slept in the living room on just a mattress for the first few months. She had a simple trestle table and four wine crates that were truly multi-purpose; they could be chairs or side tables and even act as a ladder when stacked on top of each other! Nowadays, though, they’re used as bedside tables in Ivonne’s bedroom, and there are other pieces that have joined in. By living in the house first, Ivonne was able to make clever decisions when it came to both renovating and furnishing choices.
