Our Story

Launched in 2004 by interior designer Maxwell Ryan, Apartment Therapy is an independently owned, nationally-distributed, and Webby Award-winning destination for creating and celebrating the life you love at home. With a global audience of 20MM across our site and social networks, we reach readers at every stage — renters, first-time homebuyers, empty nesters, and everyone everywhere in between — across a broad spectrum of coverage through approachable and affordable advice, inspiration, and ideas to help you make your space uniquely your own.

Our Team

Apartment Therapy is led by Editor-in-Chief, Kylie McConville, and features an editorial staff of passionate, experienced editors who are also dedicated homebodies. Our headquarters are in SoHo, New York City, where the local team uses our studio space to practice, perfect, and shoot any advice we bring to you. We cover house tours, home projects, organizing & cleaning, real estate, wellness, and home renting and buying.

Our Approach

Our editors are experts in everything from DIY to design, so when you're ready for a project but not sure where to start, we'll help you bring it to life. You'll find tons of small-space solutions and easy redos to try; the latest and greatest #CleanTok and organizing hacks to inspire your next deep clean; tips from real estate pros and experts on buying and renting; all the must-know details on the next big home decor and style trends to keep you ahead of the curve; and so much more on our site.

And when you're ready to slow down and sort through all the stuff surrounding you, you can sign up for one of our signature Cure cleaning programs. With daily newsletter prompts throughout the year, you'll go from cluttered to calm thanks to bite-sized cleaning and organizing step-by-steps and tons of support and encouragement from our social community.

Why Are Our House Tours and Before & Afters Special?

Real homes are the heartbeat of everything we do at Apartment Therapy, and our House Tour galleries and Before & After photos bring readers inside a new real home every single day. We believe if they can do it, you can too. All you need is a place to start. Here's what makes our house tours and before and afters different from any other on the internet:

We're everywhere you are.

We see the magic in a converted trailer on wheels, a one-bedroom in the suburbs, a tiny house community on one coast, a treehouse on the other, a shipping container conversion in the city, and everything in between.

We keep it real.

We show you thousands (and thousands and thousands) of spaces that are stylish, not styled. There's no behind-the-scenes prop stylist zhuzhing each space. That means you'll see the quirks that make a home, well, a home.

We're big on personality.

We love a trend, but we believe the ultimate style is personal style. If you like it, it's “in.” We show a wide breadth of design points of view in our real homes database, from personal tchotchke collections to wow-worthy murals to smart thrift store hacks.

Why You Should Trust Us

We take product recommendations seriously. We are working every day to make our own homes uniquely our own, and bring the best, tested ideas to you on our site and social platforms. Everything we recommend has been independently selected by our editors, based on thorough testing or research. We may earn a commission through affiliate partnerships with retailers.

DEI Commitment

At Apartment Therapy Media, we know that no two homes or kitchens look the same and we celebrate those differences. By showcasing a diverse range of home dwellers and home cooks, we create an inclusive community for our audience, employees, and contributors.
