Saving the world, one room at a time


Tour a Hyper-Efficient 376-Square-Foot Home (There's a Trap Door-Hidden Bed!)

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 11:00:00 -0400

Here's how a tiny beachside flat in Italy makes the most of a very small floor plan, managing to incorporate two bedrooms, a workspace, and plenty of room for lounging into a trim 376 square feet.

DIY Project Idea: How To Customize a Plain Welcome Mat — Apartment Therapy Tutorials

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 09:30:00 -0400

I was working on my own outdoor patio space recently and thought I would share an easy DIY project with you. I was looking for a small outdoor mat, but because of the high sun exposure all those beautiful patterned straw-like designer ones just don't hold up. I needed something basic and hardy, but unfortunately that usually equals boring and unattractive. So I decided to give this $10 mat from Walmart a friendly little makeover.

Two Savvy Solutions for Ugly Rental Kitchen Lights

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 08:30:00 -0400

Considering the amount of spectacularly hideous light fixtures in rental kitchens around the country, it's almost as if installing the ugliest, most unflattering light fixture was at one time the law. That's of course not true, but for anyone who's ever walked into their rental kitchen, looked up at their light fixture and wondered "why that?", this post's for you.

Lessons Learned: 9 People Reveal the Biggest Money Mistake They Ever Made

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 13:00:00 -0400

I'm a firm believer that it's important to be open and honest about money. In the past, talking about things like how much you make or the debt you're dealing with may have been taboo, but being transparent and able to discuss these things is actually really important. It's not easy to negotiate a salary or a raise when you have no idea what your peers in your field are making, for example, and if you're dealing with debt you might be missing out on options that could help you repay it more easily simply by not talking about it. And in many cases, not only is the discussion not happening, but the education people need simply isn't there.



A Woodsy MCM California "Tear Down" Gets a Second Chance — House Tour

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 16:30:00 -0400

Name: Susan and David
Location: East Bay, California
Size: 2,250 square feet
Years lived in: 1.5 years, owned

Susan and David's East Bay home comes with intact natural features, Douglas fir beams and cabinets, and a functional floor plan. Why anybody would list this mid-century home as a "tear down" on the market is a mystery. Luckily, Susan and David stumbled upon the listing when a sale fell through. The 1958 house was in untouched, original condition — a true delight for the couple who were relocating from Chicago. "We were the only buyers willing to uncover the natural beauty of this diamond in the rough and were ready to get to work upon closing," Susan says. Upon move in, they immediately fell in love with the home's charm and functionality, but they say the true joy has been learning new things about its history.



Quick Guide: What Classic American Homes Look Like Across the Country — American Design

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 11:00:00 -0400

The housing stock in America may be just as varied as the population here, particularly in older areas where people have been building for hundreds of years as waves of settlers brought influence from their native countries. Different styles and trends have prevailed over the years, and of course, no city or region is defined by just one style, but certain geographic areas definitely do have a common thread running through their local architecture and design.



Before & After: A Terribly Cute Vintage Trailer Makeover

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 10:30:00 -0400

How cute is that little guy? My goodness! Adorable on the outside, but leaky and damaged on the inside, this trailer needed some upgrades to make it safer. While making some of the less sexy fixes (apologies to all those window sealing fans out there) Meredith took the opportunity to give the space a style boost as well.

Before & After: Built-In Bookshelves Get a DIY Hack & Style Upgrade

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 14:00:00 -0400

The living room when we moved in. (Image credit: Ashley Poskin) We absolutely love our apartment; it has so much character and light, but when we moved in, one thing in particular I knew I wanted to upgrade were the bookshelves. At first glance they seemed fine, but once we started putting our books on them we realized that the positioning of the shelves — with 20" height between shelves — was not only an inefficient use of space but just looked odd with so much extra height above the books. Since the fireplace and bookshelves are the focal point of the room, I didn't think it was a design element I could ignore. READ MORE »[...]

Saving the Style of a Stick Frame Roof in Austin — Professional Project

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 16:00:00 -0400

Project by: Murray Legge Architecture
Location: Austin, Texas

It's nice to have a reason to look up. While an eye catching ceiling seems like the provenance of manor houses with molding or folks with an ingenious inclination towards unexpected wallpaper, mid-century and modern homes can come with their own visually interesting ceilings. The team over at Murray Legge Architecture wanted to highlight and preserve the ceiling (among other things) in this post war beauty.
