Just because you live in a small apartment in Cologne, Germany, doesn't mean it has to feel cramped. Jasna's apartment is all about crafts, colors, feminine decor, and a spotted fridge. And somehow, it doesn't seem cramped at all! Oh, and wait until you see how she uses clothing as decor.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of Offbeat Home Tours posts.
Take a close-up look at real Offbeat Homes of all shapes, sizes and flavors.
My 16-month-old daughter and I live on an herb farm (no, not that kind of herb farm, though we are in Northern California). I am a farm hand here, and in exchange for a certain amount of hours a week working the land, we get to live here and breathe the fresh air, learn about herbs, and watch everything bloom.
We live in a yome here. Yep, a yome — it's a cross between a yurt and a geodesic dome. And wait until you see the triangular windows…
A couple years ago, I had to disassemble my adorable apartment, passing along my furniture to my students and packing everything else into my car. But before I began the process of getting rid of my worldly possessions, I thought my little flat deserved a bit of a photo shoot.
98% of what you see here is second hand. And with the exception of electronics, nothing cost more than $150!
Our friend Paul recently finished his bus renovation — turning a former school bus into a little one-man-one-dog wintertime road house. Come see his rig, his dog, and the cozy wood stove in his simply-made tiny home.
Beretta Fleur is finally showing us the space where she hosts ALL her perfectly-hosted parties. And it's wood-paneled and has built-in rock hot tubs and a lovely bar and let's all go to there for a party!
This is the first time in my adult life that I'm not renting my space, and it's thrilling to demolish and tinker to my heart's content. For now, this is home, and I really love it. It's cozy and frankly, bigger than our shoebox in Toronto. How about that?
We've talked about Sacred Groves before — it's Ariel's mama's land in Western Washington that used to be an intentional community. But it's worth revisiting, since I just got back from the Offbeat Retreat with fresh photos and new stories. Sit back and dream your way through this quickie home tour.
