Amy Preiser: How on earth does Tiffany and Allan’s ship captain’s studio seem so spacious at such a small footprint? Maybe it’s the fiercely crisp white walls, the well-placed curtains throughout, or just the sheer brilliance of how it all comes together.

Amy Preiser: Another homeowner I’m wishing I was friends with – mainly so I could borrow her accessories or just Skype her while furniture shopping. Killer patterns throughout, ballsy wall color and wallpaper choices, and art that feels personal yet really chic and on point. Emily, call me!
Thanks again to our judges! Congratulations and good luck to our finalists! May the smallest, coolest home win!
