Cool Craftsman





Thanks so much for your sweet birthday wishes, I always use this milestone to look back at the year before and marvel at how much has changed. And this year a whole lot has happened, moved to Atlanta, got engaged, got a new niece, and now...we have decided to buy a house, here, that means we are staying here.

This was a huge decision, but I am going to really enjoy the process. This kind of takes precedence over the wedding, because dude, WAY more exciting, no?


Anyway, we are attracted to modern homes, but here they are very rare, so a craftsman is our next choice. I would like to remodel one. Check out this beautiful remodel featured on Cookie mag. I love how the result is modern, but still classic. Very much what I want to do. What do you think? Does the modern look clash with the bungalow? Plus, check out the before pics, wow!

  1. I love the look of clean, modern furniture and its lines in any setting, and think it's particularly nice when juxtaposed with nice architectural details from other eras or movements. I would let the beauty of a house, regardless of when it was built, drive your search, and decorate it with your modern touch. At least, that's what I hope to do when I grow up enough to finally buy a place...

  2. I like the furniture with straight lines, but not the curvy chairs. I really like the curvy lamp in the kitchen though.

  3. I don't think you should have to follow any rules about when the house was built. I love contrast..it's what makes it interesting. :) Congratulations on being engaged and on your decision to buy a house!
