Take a Tour of an Inviting, Japanese-Inspired Home in London — House Tour

Name: Yoko Kloeden, her husband and their three kids
Location: Richmond — London, UK
Size: 1,560 square feet
Years Lived In: 2 years, owned

Originally from Japan, Yoko founded London-based Yoko Kloeden Design in 2014 after a career in business and traveling all over the world. Her designs focus on complementing beautiful historical elements and architectural features. And decor is influenced by her Japanese background. Color and texture flirt with each other in surprising ways, and interiors often celebrate raw materials and nature. As evidenced by the London home she shares with her family, Yoko also excels in creating stunning views between spaces, like the view of the open garden from the dining room, or the first view you see when you walk through the front door.

An Insanely Dreamy Rental Apartment in a Converted Stable in a 14th Century Italian Villa — House Tour

Name: Whitley Glasgow, her husband Josh, and pup Maxwell
Location: Vicenza, Italy
Size: 4,500 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, renting

When Whitley and her husband, Josh, first imagined themselves moving to Italy, they knew they had to find a place with character. When they came across this rental apartment—a part of the Villa Fracanzan Piovene—they found it in spades. Though it’s a bit far outside the city center of Vicenza (located in a small town called Orgiano), the Glasgows say they’re used to living in rural areas, don’t mind the commute, and actually love having the land—Whitley even has a small brood of hens! And who could mind living in the country when you’re waking up in a 14th century Italian villa everyday?

A Fabulously Fearless South London Flat — House Tour

Location: Blackheath — Southeast London
Size: 1,500 square feet

Claire Swindale is fearless. She spent eight years seeing the world (with a prolonged stint in Nepal) where she trekked around Mount Everest and explored the countryside from the back of a truck. When she eventually chose to settle down and scoop up a flat in a beautiful Victorian home in Southeast London’s Blackheath neighborhood, her sense of adventure informed her approach to decor. Her creativity is untethered here, with countless colorful works of art, souvenirs, and family heirlooms all buoyed by her love affair with wallpaper.

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.

It’s amazing here with lots of trees, over 300 lakes, and tons of room for a little kiddo to run around.
