Real Living highlights 5 Cool Condos and Apartments

Practical spaces and personal style blend together in Real Living’s February feature on five homes that come in different, unique looks: geeky cool; vintage industrial; scandi-D.I.Y; eclectic overhaul; and blogger chic. “If you’re looking for highly personalized and unique ideas for your own home, this is the issue for you,” says Real Living’s editor in-chief Rachelle Medina.

In Real Homes section, there is a vintage apartment with a rough-around-the-edges beauty. There is also a multi-layered renovation of an old home, and a tiny but efficient condo that is filled with DIY projects and found objects. And there is a techie couple’s digital-themed home that’s tempered with mementos.

As each homeowner shares about the story behind his or her design, learn how a mistake in the painting can lead to an “Aha!” moment, turning the error into a work of art. Real Living offers tips to readers on how to achieve a similar feel or look that suits your style and interior needs.

Real Living’s Notebook section also gives beautiful takes on green, the latest “neutral” color, be it be sage, olive, or celery green.
