Chris and I are moving to the historic village of Sharon Springs in upstate New York to renovate an Italianate Victorian house. We're going to document every step of the process, sharing our ideas for creating big style on a small budget.

Garden
Fence
Porch

A few of our projects:

  • Transforming a plain living room into contemporary rustic showpiece
  • Renovating a kitchen using next-generation styles and clever space-maximizing ideas from Custom Cupboards
  • Styling an intimate dining room
  • Renovating two bathrooms to add modern convenience and timeless style
  • Styling master and guest bedrooms
  • Making a functional, comfortable home office and studio
  • Creating lush landscaping inspired by European gardens
  • Styling a front porch sitting area

We will be exploring low-cost ways to add high-end style to any home, including creating our own lighting, altering used furniture, painting rooms and woodwork, making our own art, and more. We will feature the latest furniture lines, the hottest kitchen design trends, and more.

We hope that you join us on our journey! Be sure to follow along with us on Facebook and Twitter!

Every Day is a Holiday
We just returned from a short business trip to a town that is literally a stone's throw from Canada. (We actually took the exit boldly marked as the "LAST EXIT BEFORE CANADA," which someone should use as an album title.) And while we weren't meeting or socializing with folks, we were in our hotel room watching TV.
Sto Very Frustrating
Our house has no fireplace. It may seem strange that a home built in the 1800s and nestled between two snowtastic mountain ranges wouldn't have one, but, as a formal village house, it likely served as a secondary summer home for wealthy folks who would venture up during the balmy season and wisely dash back to the city when things got chilly.
Bad Days and Forward Motion
I didn't wake up on the wrong side of the bed, did I? Did a black cat cross my path? Did I walk under a ladder? No matter. Something happened, and the day got off to a rough start.
