Eclectic & Modern At Its Best

Meet New York interior designer, Julieta Alvarez. We were lucky to be invited into her light-filled home to talk about her style and the projects she’s completed. Her style is anything but static, and she has built up her house over time to create her fun and international style. She draws inspiration from the places she visits on her travels- filling her space with local products to make her apartment really feel like home. An avid DIYer, Julieta is especially proud of how she’s upgraded classic pieces with little embellishments, like adding handmade leather pulls to the dresser in her daughter’s room. How long have you been living in this space? We’ve been living here for 4 years and I love it. The views alone are what keeps me here.  A favorite home project you’ve completed? The gallery wall in the living room and the DIY dressers and nightstands How would you describe your home style? Eclectic, fun and international. How do you make your house more feel like home?  By including things from my travels and …

An Eclectic Bohemian NYC Apartment

The first thing you notice when you walk into Kari‘s NYC apartment is the color green. Green sits on every surface of her place, it also hangs from the ceilings. What’s this green we’re talking about? It’s her plants – her babies. It’s as if you stepped into a greenhouse. You no longer are in the city, but instead a mini jungle oasis. Amidst all the plants, there are unique pieces collected from her travels and items from her Philippine culture. We chatted with her to talk about her home style, how we maintains all her plant babies, and future TaskRabbit projects. How long have you been living in this space? We’ve been here for about 9 months. The location is pretty unbeatable so we don’t have plans to move anytime soon. What’s your favorite thing about your place? The balcony is the best. We’re east facing, so we get to wake up to the beautiful sun every morning and our plants love it. Also I love that the bedroom is completely separate from the …

Simple, Light-Filled Brooklyn Apartment

Eva’s home is full of contrasts— minimal yet warm, monochromatic yet colorful, free of clutter yet full of life. The control she has over the space is far from cold or stiff. She manages to create a sparse space that is still infused with warmth, meaning and life. Her home is an inviting place of gathering for friends, family and her four friendly pets. What do you love most about your home? The amount of light that comes through all of the windows makes up for the fact that we have no outdoor space. It’s warm and welcoming!

Airy, Bright, and Full of Light

“Big” City Living

Being able to walk everywhere and always having something to do are a couple of our favorite perks of living int he city. However, it often means that you have to give up on square feet. In this two-part series, we’re talking to Kelli and asking her how she makes the most of her efficient 150 sq. ft. downtown San Francisco studio. Turn your space into an inspired space and book a Tasker today. What makes your home, your home? I’ve travelled quite a bit around Asia as I lived in Japan for a few years. All the little things that I brought back from my travels (even the photographs I took) make my home feel like a reflection of me/ where I’ve been and what I’ve done. What inspires your home style? The space. I would love to incorporate large gallery-style art walls and weathered, wood furniture but it doesn’t fit the space which was a hard adjustment when I moved in. If I were to design my dream home it would be classic …
