A Menswear Designer’s Sophisticated, Small Brooklyn Studio — House Tour

Name: Thomas Finney
Location: Fort Greene — Brooklyn, NY
Size: 400 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, renting

When Thomas moved into his studio three years ago, functionality and style were his primary concerns. “This is the first place I’ve actually invested in. Before, I just had IKEA everything.” Despite its proximity to a grade school playground (literally across the street) and shop-lined Brooklyn streets, thanks to Thomas’ signature style, the space captures the coziness of a log cabin.

DIY Newbies Add Color & Character to a New Build in the Netherlands — House Tour

Name: Shari Pelkmans , Mike and Olle
Location: Heeze, the Netherlands
Size: 1,087 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

Three years ago Shari and Mike bought a newly-built house in Heeze , a tiny town in the south of the Netherlands (and Mike’s hometown). The location is great: a short walk from the town center, but also lots of pretty nature just around the corner. While the couple is definitely happy with their home, their dream house would be a building with more character, like an old farm or factory. The lack of original details is a regret shared by many residents of newly-built houses. However, this hasn’t stopped Shari from adding their own unique elements to their home. Even though she and Mike don’t consider themselves super handy, she figured that DIY would be the way to go. There’s nothing like seeing your own design come to life, handmade with love, and being the only one of its kind!

Deanna and Brian’s home looks just like what you imagine when you think of classic mid-century modern home design.

These style homes were designed with the intent to connect to the outdoors.”
