When my husband and I decided to buy our first house, we met with our Realtor on a Tuesday morning, eagerly anticipating all the beautiful homes we might see. After two days and a dozen home tours, we were discouraged.
All of the houses in our price range seemed devoid of personality—just one brick box after another. They were not the types of homes in which we wanted to start our family.
We called off the house hunt right away, then resigned ourselves to renting until we could find our dream property.
I spent the next few months researching home styles, from Victorians, to Craftsmans, to Colonials. I discovered in myself a love of architecture.
I started this blog to share this passion with others and to remind people that homes can be beautiful as well as functional.
