around the house
My favorite aspect of our house is that it was built in 1926 and the previous owners lived here since 1940! Which means that most everything in the house was original when we moved in. This was a good and bad thing. We had to do a lot of updating (think of kitchens built and designed in 1926- not as practical today!) but the good part was that the house was filled with so much authentic character. From the hardware to the doors & windows to the light fixtures… everything seemed to add a certain charm to the house that just cant be bought. It’s these simple touches that make the house feel so warm and comfortable to me.
