The Cartorialist’s Classic, Relaxed California Home — House Tour

Name: Carly Kuhn
Location: Larchmont — Los Angeles, California
Size: 1,303 square feet
Years Lived In: 1.5 years, renting

“I moved into this space about year and a half ago. I was drawn to this space because of the great location. As a New Yorker, I love this Larchmont area that’s really walkable. It also has insane light, which is always a priority, especially since I work from home and need a lot of light to feel inspired,” admits Carly Kuhn, artist and founder of The Cartorialist. But even after over a year in this loft space, she didn’t quite feel like she had her home’s layout right. There’s lots of light and beautiful views, but also a wide open floor plan. She explains that “it was difficult to conceptualize the entire design and layout without seeing everything together.”

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.

Katie’s friends are right, walking into her lovely duplex in Belmont, North Carolina is an immensely welcoming experience.

Then again, maybe it is a little bit of everything.

Author Amy Stewart Says Goodbye to Her California Victorian — House Tour

Name: Amy Stewart and Scott Brown
Location: Eureka, California
Size: 2800 square feet
Years Lived In: 17 years; own (well, we used to own it. We just sold the house and we’re moving to Portland.)

How do you say goodbye to a house you’ve lived in and loved for 17 years? That’s just the dilemma writer and artist Amy Stewart and her husband, Scott Brown, a rare book dealer, recently faced when they decided to sell the big Victorian house in Eureka, California they’ve lived in for almost two decades. Amy and Scott are downsizing and making the move to Oregon. “The new condo in Portland is cool, but it’s not 110 years old,” wrote Amy. To help with the farewells, she took pen (and watercolor) to paper to illustrate her favorite elements to this house. “The sketchbook is SUCH therapy. I don’t know if I will ever get over this house. I question my sanity every day for leaving such a gorgeous home.”

Designer Caroline Z Hurley’s Textile-Filled Studio Apartment — House Tour

Name: Caroline Z Hurley
Location: West Village, NYC
Size: 420 square feet
Years lived in: 13 years

Caroline Z Hurley has lived in her apartment for 13 years, but has known the space even longer. Both of her sisters each lived in the apartment before her, and at one point, Caroline shared the 420-square-foot studio with one of them! Originally, the apartment was just an open studio with a half-wall separating the bedroom area. And while it eventually took ten months and one giant leak to renovate the space, the end result was worth it all.

Location: South End — Boston, Massachusettes
Size: 1,800 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, owned

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 15.0px Georgia; color: #3c3c3c; -webkit-text-stroke: #3c3c3c}

The same sensibilities that inspired Milicent to launch her lifestyle label Artemis Design Company — including a self-described passion for collecting, travel, and a love of all things beautiful — shape how she decorates her home. Her creativity and collector’s eye are apparent everywhere you look.

A Collector’s Victorian Cape Town Cottage Inspired by the East — House Tour

Name: Sarah Scott and her pugs, Lulu and Ozzy
Location: Sea Point East, Cape Town
Size: 1615 square feet
Years lived in: 2.5 years, owned

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica}

The beautiful house you see today is a far cry from how it looked when Sarah, a designer, purchased it two and a half years ago. She had chanced upon the property when it was totally derelict and still in the very beginning stages of a renovation. But it was the incredible Victorian staircase that sold Sarah on this 1901 naval cottage…and made her put in an offer.
