Lovely home. I'm curious about the antique chest in the front hallway from "Jim's parents". I have a chest from my parents that is very similar. My family has some vague story that my great-grandparents brought the chest with them from Ireland when they immigrated through Ellis Island in the early 1900s. No one has any details or even knows if that's true. Do you know any of the history of your trunk? Where it was made? What year? Thanks in advance!

#4 is legitimate, in my opinion. Maybe not an axe murderer...but I am a female, I live alone, on the first floor, no A/C, so my windows are open. I do worry about intruders at night.

Love it all!

The wooden sign that says, "I love your grits"...I was thinking...damn! I want to try those grits! Then I realized it says, "I love your guts". Ha. That's cool too, I guess. :)

I don't understand how you could call this place "formerly uninspired"??!! There are so many (I'm assuming original) charming details. The ceiling. The woodwork. The door knobs. Beautiful details like this aren't found in every home.

Really beautiful. I love a kitchen where people can hang out while the cook is at work. This is perfect set-up for chatting while cooking.

I would add two barstools around the island.

Yes! Keep track of every penny! I was surprised to learn that people don't do this. Based on personal observation, my friends and family that track every penny are in much better financial shape than those that spend without paying attention. This can't be a coincidence.

Really really love it. Love the water pic above the fireplace. I think I might steal that idea. :)

I have vintage hankies from my Grandma. Have no idea what to do with them, but they are beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love carbs too! Nice update, but I do agree with Miller8786 about the big utensils.

This math totally makes sense if someone gives you the $50-$100K you need for the downpayment...then owning a house in a major US city on the salaries listed is do-able.

Funny...when I was looking through the photos I was thinking to myself, "whoever decorated this must exercise a lot of restraint"...and "this house looks so fresh for the owners having lived here for 25 years". I like that similar sentiments were noted in the owner's "biggest challenge".

Cheers to you...the apartment is lovely.
