A Condo Found on Craigslist Is a Uniquely Magical, Bright Dream Rental — House Call

Name: Ella Khan
Location: Clawson neighborhood — Oakland, California
Size: 800 square feet
Years lived in: 1.5 years, renting

I found my home via Craigslist ad and it was seriously such a magical find. The condo is located in an old elementary school building that was converted into lofts several years ago. Each space is unique and mine had been recently renovated by the previous owner who had put in beautiful pale reclaimed hardwood floors, industrial lighting fixtures, and an amazing marble island. The high ceilings and huge windows definitely sealed the deal! (далее…)

A 494-Square-Foot Studio Was Decorated on an Awesomely Small Budget — House Call

Name: Erica Thomas
Location: Williamsburg — Brooklyn, New York
Size: 494 square feet
Years lived in: 6 months, renting

I live in a 494-square-foot studio apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This is the first apartment I’ve ever lived in that has a really fantastic layout that utilizes all of the space well. It has 10-foot ceilings and a wall of eight-foot windows, so it definitely feels bigger than it is. I’ve lived here six months and prioritized getting the space decorated and organized as soon as possible. Otherwise, I know myself, and I would be living with a bunch of unpacked boxes indefinitely.

This 119-Year-Old Denver Home Is a Plant- and Animal-Filled Miniature Zoo — House Tour

Name: Madeleine Schaffner and roomie Lyndsey Mueller
Location: Denver, Colorado
Size: 1,231 square feet
Years Lived In: 1 year, renting

Residing in our 119-year-old home is a wide array of plants, animals, and two human beings (me, Madeleine, and my roommate Lyndsey). We think of our space as a miniature interactive zoo, with 70+ houseplants keeping every room company, plus one bearded dragon, two geckos, two snakes, two cats, two hermit crabs, and two fish that guests love to observe and handle. We have bounced around from place to place each year, never fully expanding our roots, so we intended on this house being a temporary haven like the others. However, the bright space begged for more plants and our love for all things living expanded to reptiles and other small critters that bring us so much joy. Gradually the house became more full, alive, and a passion project of creating sanctuary for as long as we have the opportunity to live here. (далее…)
