A Wallpaper Designer’s “Psychedelic Modern Cowboy” Style Home — House Tour

Name: Samantha Santana and James Lively
Location: Jefferson Park — Los Angeles, California
Size: 619 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years, 2 months, owned

When Samantha and James first moved into their historic, 93-year-old Spanish bungalow, they knew they would be doing most of the renovations and remodeling themselves. It was a long haul, especially since their home was inhabited by squatters before they moved in. After two years of the hands-on-approach, the couple is proud to call this fun, colorful home their own. They both hold a passion for creating, so the opportunity to work together on such a large scale project combined the best of their styles. Though at times the renovation process meant they were camping more than actually living in the house, the end results were well worth the effort.

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.
