Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: My home was built in 1875 and is full of so much character and original beauty and showcasing such craftsmanship.
The home has four fireplaces and a grand staircase and I painted the home in bright and cheerful colors, which gives the home a modern and elegant touch.
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Colorful, vintage, eclectic, and chic.
What is your favorite room and why? My favorite room in my home is the front room. The crown molding in the room was done by hand, the natural light is glorious, and the teal fireplace and lavender walls makes the room such a wonderful place to come home to.
What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? The last thing I purchased for the home was some new artwork.
Any advice for creating a home you love? Yes, when creating a home, it should be filled with things that you love and tell a story about your life. Never hold on to items that don’t serve a purpose. Items take up useful oxygen in a home and when you are surrounded by beauty you will be able to breathe deeper.
