Alissa's Athens Renovation

House Call

Name: Alissa
Location: Athens, Georgia

Our house was built circa 1900. When we moved in 6 years ago, there were no kitchen cabinets. We finally renovated the kitchen last August. We also took our non-working fireplace — that opens to both bedrooms — and turned it into a working gas one with glass rocks instead of logs. I love to put dissimilar objects together — our Asian style bed frame with shabby chic chandeliers, for example, or a huge blue ceramic bull's head in our baby's room. The house is a mishmash of objects and furniture we've collected over the past 10 years we've been together. Some are from flea markets, some from CB2, some from higher-end art dealers. We like it and everyone that comes over wants me to decorate their house!

Thanks Alissa!
