Written by on

At Lauren and Tom’s apartment, there’s a kitchen cart steps away from the entrance that is perpetually stacked with treats and tea or wine, depending on the time of day. The first thing you notice once you’re in their apartment is the drink that’s immediately put in your hands and the focus on good old hospitality. There aren’t chairs and couches pointing at a television, but furniture and conversation pieces that facilitate afternoons of chatter and laughter. This apartment marks a new chapter for Lauren and Tom. Their previous apartments were... | Continue reading article

Apartment Crush: Mélanie & Steven

Written by on

Created with Admarket’s flickrSLiDR. Post by Dominic and Nancy Having just returned after a month of travel (many apologies for the lull in posts), I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of home.  What is that unidentifiable quality that makes a house or apartment feel like a home, even to a stranger?  Whatever it is, Mélanie & Steven have managed to harness that quality in their fresh, cheerful, and above all, homey-feeling New Edinburgh abode.  Favoring a clean and simple design vibe, Mélanie and Steven resist falling into minimalist... | Continue reading article

Apartment Crush: Auntie Loo edition

Written by on

Created with Admarket’s flickrSLiDR. Post by Dominic and Nancy This week’s post includes two things I really like: sweet treats and super nice gals.

Mandi was really welcoming, making us feel at home and letting us explore her space. Having seen her fun and lively bakery, we were surprised to find a completely different vibe in Mandi and Chris’ apartment. Minimal yet... | Continue reading article

After quite an influx of demands, we finally bring you our first Apartment Crush tour. We dropped in on Professor Adam Oliver Brown’s fossil-filled downtown apartment to scope out the cozy space he shares with his cat, Dr. Tuxtable (a Cosby show and tuxedo enthusiast), as well as with several other little creatures. Name: Adam Oliver Brown. Neighborhood:... | Continue reading article
