The 5 Clever Home Tours You Loved the Most This June

Our Clever editorial team might be New York City–based, but we know you like to see into homes from all over the world. Paris is always a surefire winner—two of your favorite home tours this month are located there, and it’s almost always on our monthly top-five list—but even farther-flung locales do it for you, too. A Sydney-based architect transformed this studio with a brilliant sliding screen, and you couldn’t get enough of it. And back home, a Brooklyn apartment that’s totally brimming with personality captured your attention, as did the sunniest L.A. bungalow we’ve ever seen. Maybe we’ve all caught the travel bug, now that’s summer’s in full swing? Even if you can’t get away from your desk this weekend, we hope the top home tours of June give you a little dose of vacation vibes when you need it.

Should you be renovating a studio apartment, don’t forget that adding walls (even if it’s tiny) can be a good thing—as proven by this very brilliant sliding screen in a Sydney studio.

Pieds-a-terre might seem inaccessible—because hello, who can afford one?—but they often provide some of the BEST small-space solutions, like this Parisian loft that tucks a tiny kitchen under the lofted bedroom and manages to turn the staircase into storage. Whew!
