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 Kristin fell in love with the living room views, but Corey couldn’t get past the ugly facade and outdated design.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.

A Nashville Songwriter’s Cozy Bungalow — House Tour

Name: Matt, The Stewart House
Location: Nashville, Tennessee
Size: 730 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years, owned

The story behind Matt’s mid-century modern bungalow is as beautiful as the home itself. “This place was built (and named) in memory of my late grandmother. I share my middle name with her (Stewart). She was the most amazing hostess and the money she left me when she passed was the seed money to get the design going on this little haven. The green leather lounge chair and ottoman sat in her home in St. Charles, Missouri for my whole life until it was passed along to me.”

Newlyweds Aim for “Urban Minimalism” in a 100-Year-Old St. Louis Home — House Tour

Name: Meg and Julia Rigano
Location: Fox Park — St. Louis, Missouri
Size: 2,126 square feet
Years lived in: 6 months, owned

Five years ago, hosting a party at this address would have been unheard of — the century-old home was falling apart and on the market for less than $40,000 at the time. But in recent years, St. Louis investors have been quickly buying up homes like this one to flip. And this in turn has opened the door for young, aspiring homeowners like Meg and Julia to make new memories…in a house with some serious character.

A “Bohemian Bayou” Hideaway in New Orleans — House Tour

Name: Anne Yvonne Stoltze and her Ragdoll cats Teddy (who sadly passed away this summer) and Nigel
Location: Treme — New Orleans, Louisiana
Size: 650 square feet
Years lived in: 1.5 years, renting

Anne’s romance with New Orleans began three years ago during a visit for Jazz Fest, a familiar story here in the Crescent City. The unique architecture, lush landscape, and celebratory way-of-life felt just right for this Iowa-born bon vivant. It wasn’t long before she sold her house in Westchester, New York; put most of her possessions in storage; and settled into a cozy one-bedroom rental close to the French Quarter. “I drank this magical city’s Kool-Aid the moment I saw those soft warm greens of the bayou sunning themselves from the airplane window,” she swoons.

Jill and her husband John are New Yorkers who left Brooklyn behind for a West Coast dream. When they first started house hunting in California, they weren’t looking for a major renovation project per se — after all they were still living on the East Coast at the time. That changed once Jill caught sight of the seventies era split-level fixer upper intended to be a broker’s flip for their agent. Set high above the street, the contemporary architecture offered huge windows perfect for taking in the treetop views of the oaks and surrounding Mission Canyon neighborhood of Santa Barbara. Jill knew managing a renovation from across the country was not going to be easy, but she also knew it would be worth it.
