Name: Giana Shorthouse Location: FLATS at Ponce City Market — Atlanta, Georgia. Size: 655 square feet Years Lived In: 2 years, renting I'm a designer and prop stylist living at Ponce City Market; the building is a historic, mixed-use community hub and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. My apartment is an extension of me and what I do. Stylistically, it leans more on the side of minimalism, or half minimalism and half collected, curated things I've picked up throughout the years—leftovers from photo shoots or things I've picked up at local shops and on trips. Everything has meaning behind it to some extent. READ MORE »

People are willing to shell out hundreds of dollars on eBay to get a vintage dish from the '50s.

I Was Able to Buy a Home Because: I Borrowed from an Unexpected Source

Though some people may consider a dream home to come with a garage, hardwood floors, and the most quiet neighbors in history, truth be told, simply owning a home could be a millennial dream come true for some. According to a 2015 "Millennial Homeownership" report from the Urban Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank that does economic and social policy research, the biggest factors holding millennials back from homeownership were delayed marriage and, of course, student loan debt. The report says that the homeownership rate of millennials is about eight percentage points lower than that of two prior generations (Gen X and Baby Boomers) when they were in the same age bracket. Yet, despite all of this, millennials still want to become homeowners—and 36.8 percent of them already are, according to third quarter of 2018 data from the U.S. Census Bureau data . If you're in the 63 percent who don't own property, you may be interested in hearing from fellow millennials who accomplished the seemingly impossible. I've talked to five different millennial homeowners to see how they did it. (Just a caveat, these are first person stories — not necessarily financial advice, so talk to a professional to see what works for you!) First up, Ashley Coleman, 32, who works in the music industry: READ MORE »

Rachel Rosenthal is the mother of identical twins, a busy entrepreneur, and an expert in home organizing. But she also wants to make it clear that the end game to decluttering isn't necessarily an Instagram-worthy closet. "Getting organized is a way of life, and a realistic one at that, not a one time event that leads to a Pinterest-perfect world (unless you really want that!)," she writes on her website. READ MORE »
