Brownstone home tour…

Nothing like kicking back and virtually touring well restored/renovated homes. I LOVE how they kept the original wood work in this house, while making it more modern and open.

Photo Inspirations..

Today’s photos not only inspired me- they have lengthened my “to buy” and “to do” list-lol. I’m not on a mission for a solid Danish diningroom set, Eames wall coat rack (which I have one on “Watch”  on Ebay) and more amazing chairs… oh, did I not tell you? I LOVE chairs…see pic below and you will see why.

I love the color on the walls of this room and the Danish Dining set in the background..and don’t the green chairs look comfortably like you can just sink down into them (not sure how you’ll get back up) lol

I like the look of these stairs painted black- I was considering repainting mines white-but maybe I should try out some colors first..might as well step out of the box, the house is already not in it’s original state nor do I have the time and money to “restore”-so we’re on the road to renovation with a funky twist..

Brooklyn Brownstone Home Tour!

The West End/Westivew Neighborhoods in Atlanta have so much in common with Bed-stuy Brooklyn. I’m always inspired when I see the transformation there and in my new community.

I love with Malene Barnett  has done with her home. Her carpets are even more impressive!

626 Willard Ave…

The renovation on this house turned out very well. This house is similar to mines- wish I could reno in.  6 months. The owners did a really nice job updating this home and still keeping it affordable for first time home buyers looking to get into the Westview community. Listed at 124.9K, the 3bed/2bath home is on a spacious lot, with nicely manicured low maintenance perennial landscaping.  I love how  the home is positioned far from the street-its like your own private retreat once you’re up the stairs. The house also features a huge backyard with covered deck.

The master suite is upstairs; a large attic build out with windows on every side, a nursery or office and bathroom with custom tile. The master also has double closets and double bathroom vanities -talk about items to keep a relationship lasting! lol….after 12yrs of marriage, I can’t stress the importance of MY OWN closet and sink lol

The downstairs bedrooms are also roomy- one with french doors leading to the back deck- this would make a nice guest room or office.

The owners also were smart enough to think of adding a laundry ROOM(with a window) …dual purpose since its off the back of the house and kitchen, it can also work as a mud room. (something I desperately need after my kids play outside on a rainy day with the dog!!)

Again, this house is a delight in this price range for any first time homebuyers! I hope to have some new neighbors soon.
