We purchased our 1940s New England colonial home in the spring of 2011. It was a beautiful home with great structure and charm. The only problem was it was showing it’s age in a major way. The home had been foreclosed on and empty for nearly two years before we finally moved in. Since then we’ve spent most of our time lovingly ( sometimes forcefully) bringing the beauty back out of this charmer.

Pretty much every room is a work in progress : ) I’ll try to keep this up to date.

    Wow! I really love the decor in your home – such a great use of colour. I especially like the kitchen makeover and think that the central island is a cool feature. Congratulations on a job well done and thanks for the fab blog post. Very inspired. You’ve motivated me to get on and finish our DIY house projects now…
