Autumn in D.C. is the best time of year weather-wise. I just love how bright and blue the sky is (today’s weather is a perfect example). Inspired by fall,  I’ve found homes which offer a lot of natural light and bright details. As we enter the colder months, you’ll still be able to take in all the beauty our city has to offer from the comforts of home.

Natural Light$1690 / 1br – Gorgeous, Light-drenched Huge 1 BR Apartment — $1690 (North Petworth)
What makes this place great: As a lover of natural light, the headline alone on this post spoke to me. Definitely look through all of the photos in this one, the lighting and overall design is dreamy. In this above ground basement unit, you get beautiful exposed brick walls and high ceilings. Crucial to living in a converted town house is private access, which this place offers.

Why you should think twice: North Petworth is an area I am less familiar with. Commuting to work could be tough depending on where your office is.

dacha$2995 / 2br – Convenient home walkable distance from U Street Metro Station! (Columbia Heights)
Why you’ll love it: There is so much to love about this two bedroom Columbia Heights apartment. Pictured above is the awesome, beer garden-inspired patio, but check out the other property photos too. The current tenants choose bright, fun colors for the walls, and included cool features like sliding barn doors and a welcoming blue front door. Joanna Gaines would love this house. One of the best parts is that it can come furnished!

I honestly can’t think of a reason not to inquire here!


$1475 / 400ft2 – Unparalleled Location/Chic Updated Studio!MOVE IN OCT.! (Columbia Heights)
What caught my eye: Price and location, and of course the sunlight seeping into this post’s second photo. Knowing this neighborhood well, this building is positioned to get great light, and pretty views.
Why it might not work: not much detail in the post, or even a guarantee that the image really depicts the apartment available. Make sure you visit the management company’s website for more details.

Georgetown$1500 Studio Apt in Georgetown (Georgetown)
What makes this place great: Unfortunately the photos in this post are tiny, but look closely and you’ll see just how amazing the architectural details are. Exposed brick, curved arches, white wood paneling, and marble floors — all Pinterest boxes checked. Nervous about how to get all of your stuff in a tiny studio? Don’t be, the closet includes a built-in dresser!

Why it may not work: There’s no metro in Georgetown, and the space looks pretty small (no mention of actual square footage).

CapHill$1750 / 1br – 105 9th St SE #302 (ALL UTILITIES INCLUDED) (CAPITOL HILL)
What makes this place great: 
Title says it all — utilities included! Additionally, this cute Capitol Hill one bedroom is located in a row house turned condo building that looks like a castle. Live out your fairy tale dreams here and be close to a metro (Eastern Market is the nearest stop).

Why you should think twice: The kitchen looks tiny, not ideal for you Ina Garten wannabes.

Logan$2950 / 2br – 1000ft2 – Beautiful 2/bed 2/bath Logan/Dupont Circle Condo (Logan Circle)
Why I’d choose it: I lived on P Street for nearly two years and loved it, so any spot near there is a win for me. Given how popular this area is, the price is a steal for a two bedroom at 1000 square feet. Act fast, because it is genuinely hard to find so much space (and windows) for under 3k in this neighborhood.

What I don’t love: There is some carpeting, I would ask if this is professionally cleaned before move-in.

Until next week,
