Name: Logan & Katherine
Location: East Cambridge, Massachusetts
Logan and Katherine have lived in their two bedroom East Cambridge apartment for six years and were joined by their son Soren 2½ years ago. They are both New England transplants who met in Cambridge in 2003 and decided to stay forever. Determined not to have their home overrun by colorful plastic, they have worked hard to create a space that is kid-friendly without looking like a daycare — all while maintaining their sense of style.
They are a young, small family with a strong DIY mentality and have learned to be creative with space and a limited budget. They work around the little quirks that always make apartment living interesting. Most of their furniture has been made or refurbished by one of them, bought from Craigslist or snagged off the street.
They both love all the natural light that fills their apartment, especially during the dreary New England winters. Katherine says her favorite piece is the large scale photo she took of Logan and Soren at a local beach and loves how it looks with the orange chair she reupholstered — which she admits has seen better days thanks to their darling son. Logan loves the open living space which makes 800 square feet seem like much more. Soren's favorite feature is the view of the trains which turn around about ten feet from their kitchen window — a little boy's dream and city living at its finest.
It was important to them that their apartment feel like a real home and they can't imagine living anywhere else!
Thanks Logan & Katherine!
