Michaele's Good Energy

What I Love About My Home
I truly believe that spaces inherently carry different energies. When we were first looking to buy an apartment, this was the only one that just felt "us." It felt like home without any of our stuff in it! So, I love it's naturally good energy. Aside from that, it's all about the decorative details that are original to the building. Our row house was built in 1901, and our apartment has the original (and highly detailed) pressed tin ceilings intact as well as the inlaid wood floors and door mouldings. Another thing we really, really love is our kitchen-it's definitely the heart of our home. It was a (not-so-hot) mess when we first moved in -so we renovated. I fear leaving this apartment and never liking another kitchen as much as this one!
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Being patient with our selections. There is an urge to rush to get everything in its place and just-so, especially if you need a professional's help to put it in -like light fixtures. We definitely rushed to decide on a few of them and then changed our mind later and decided to buy new ones-we wasted money on that.
