Flora's "Gentleman's Residence"
What I Love About My Home
I fell in love with the architectural details. Designed as a gentleman's residence the building was constructed in 1915. There are push button light switches and the original intercom/buzzer is in the hallway. The Murphy Bed wall, tray ceiling and beautiful light really enhance the room.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Budget. Repaying student loans keeps the budget for furniture very low. Luckily, I have come across some great pieces within my price range. My favorite items were found at thrift stores, flea markets and on Craigslist (I am gradually weeding out the Ikea). I really enjoy finding well-worn, overlooked items and fixing them up. A little elbow grease not only does wonders but also helps promote sustainability.
