An Industrial Eclectic Bachelor Pad in Texas — House Call

Name: Matthew Minor
Location: Fort Worth, TX
Size: 895 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, renting

I moved to Fort Worth, my hometown, after 10 years in NYC. To make a leap this big, I needed to be excited about my home.

A Studio Apartment Goes from Fine to Fabulous Thanks to a Faux Wall — House Call

Name: Jackie Barth
Location: New York City
Size: 466 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, renting

One of the biggest bummers about living in a studio apartment is the whole “everything’s in one room” vibe. If you don’t love the idea of being able to see your bed from your couch (or are looking for some extra privacy in your small space) you’ll find inspiration in this NYC rental studio. Jackie and her father used wardrobe doors (similar to these IKEA ones) to DIY a “faux” wall to create a separation between the living space and the bedroom space.

Downsizing Your Stuff Can Be a Little Less Painful, Here’s How

Colie and her husband’s Minneapolis rental isn’t super tiny — at 781 square feet it’s perfectly adequate for two people. But the place they moved from had more space, 1150 square feet. While the jump down in size wasn’t tremendous, the act of downsizing is always difficult, and it was even tougher in this case thanks to a serious lack of storage. Colie shares her experience and four tips to making downsizing a little less painful.

DIY Room Makeovers You Won’t Believe Are Actually Basements

Do you have a basement? Is it being enjoyed? Does it look blah? (Are you perhaps afraid to go down there?) Whether you own or rent, you’ll find inspiration in the end results of these two basements designed by creative couples (one in a rental home, one in an owned home). Each couple approached design in different ways, but the outcomes are the same: A previously unused basement ends up a beautiful bonus space for the home.

A Sunny Micro Studio in Georgia — House Call

Name: Kelly Jackson
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Size: 300 square feet

“We bought this Eastlake-style Victorian home almost a year ago, right after we had a newborn baby (our second child, daughter Lucy),” writes Kelly Jackson. “The whole house needed major renovations, but my husband, who is a realtor, convinced me that despite this being the WORST time ever to take on a major reno and uproot our whole family, that this was an amazing investment. I listened (begrudgingly) as he convinced me that we could convert the back of the home into two rental units/Airbnbs that could also function as MIL’s when our family was in town.”

A Professional Organizer Reveals Her Favorite Products of All Time

There’s is a quote by professional organizer Kristen Ziegler, of the company Minima, that really resonates with me: “I think a lot of people view organizing as arranging things and purchasing containers.” As she exemplifies in her home tour and describes in a post about staying tidy all year long — true and long-lasting organization isn’t just about containers.
