If I utter the word “renovation” what comes to mind? Horror? Stress? Sleepless nights? Deep expenses abyss? Maybe a little of all the above? Well, I can relate. My husband and I went through massive renovations 2 years ago in our apartment and last year in the other apartment we own as part of our Montréal Duplex. It did cost a little more than we had anticipated, although I had prepared a cushion of 20% above the quoted prices. We did get unpleasant surprises when we opened up walls to find out that the electricity had not been changed since the 1920′s and it was beyond repair. But when it was all said and done, and we managed to not get divorced (not even close, can you imagine!!) we were more than happy with the results.
This 1920′s Atlanta Dutch Colonial home is that kind of miraculous before and after transformation. I mean… look at this place! So luminous, so current and yet so timeless. I love everything about this home, which gives me a little hope and anticipation for our next reno, as who knows if it might be coming sooner rather than later (I am a bit of a nomad and I am already fantasizing about a larger home, a real stand alone home with the white picket fence and all!!)
Happy Monday lovelies
