As of late the projects coming my way are those of older homes in need of some new life. And I couldn’t be happier. While new builds are exciting in their own right, I just love coming into a home with history and giving it a modern update that aligns with my clients style. There’s also a charm in older homes that you just can manufacture in a new build.
But older homes do come with their challenges and can often be tricky to decorate. The balance of historical and contemporary isn’t an easy one to find. This weeks Inspired Interiors home tour has managed to find that balance perfectly.
If you’ve followed along for a while you’ll know that when it comes to holiday decor, I prefer simple over fussy. The season can be busy enough on it’s own, I like for my home to be festive, yet comforting.
When I was searching for a condo, I had two requirements – it had to have two bedrooms (my Dad thought it would be better for resale) and it had to be in a walk-able neighborhood. I loved the idea of being able to walk to get my coffee, the newspaper or a few groceries. I ended up in a neighborhood that I love today just as much as when I first moved into it. It remains just as vibrant and walk-able, with new business moving into the area all the time.
