Open hOUSE
a gallery

Because, as our English teachers used to always chide: "Show, don’t tell!", Digs brings you the Open House gallery, a place to take a peep into some real quasi-adult homes. Offering some talk* but mostly images galore ... 

*For fun facts about each of these homes, click on the "about these digs" link that'll appear in the upper right corner of the gallery window

Featured home: 
Back in 2005, Eve generously invited us in for a look around the smashingly cool, art-filled, color-saturated digs she was sharing with her husband Jason. Fast-forward a few years, throw in an on-the-whim abode makeover, add a new member to the household, and voila: Same old space. Same fabulous style. Completely different décor. Mosey in for a tour of their retro-cool roost

peek in ...

take a peek!

Want to show us how you live? We’re looking for images of real digs to feature in Open House!

Show us the big picture or zoom in on your favorite details, walk us around the outside or take us indoors – give us a sense of what it is that makes your nest distinctly you. Send us an e-mail with your name, age, occupation and city, along with 5 or so images (jpeg or gif; 80K max. per image) depicting your humble habitat (if you have more photos you'd like us to check out, you can send a link to a photo set as well).
