Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: We bought our mid-century home with grand plans to renovate and modernize it. After a big kitchen renovation, we realized that our plans (and recently completed kitchen renovation) didn’t fit the home. We were trying too hard to make a design that we liked fit the home, when we should have embraced everything that comes with a 1960s home (gold sparkled bathroom floors, wood paneling, orange and yellow vinyl flooring in the basement, stone walls). Slowly, we’ve made modest updates to the home that bring out its character. I am a professional organizer and my husband and I have two young daughters. I’ve finally come to terms with living in a home with many outdated features: it’s not a grand home with tall ceilings, but its character and warmth have made it home.
