Allison & Mike's Contemporary Townhouse

House Call

Name: Allison & Mike
Location: Hillsborough, New Jersey (about an hour from Manhattan)

My husband and I live in a 1980's contemporary townhouse — approximately 1,300 square feet. When we moved in, EVERYTHING was white. I wanted a cozy yet modern vibe and did that mostly with paint and furniture. We have a unique layout and an asymmetrical living room.

We also have a lot of sliders and only 2 windows. I did a lot of DIY projects — I won the February Jumpstart contest with my starburst mirror — although we haven't done any real renovations. I think my DIY projects and thrifty solutions could be inspirational to others looking to make big improvements on a small budget. We also have a really cute (and photogenic) dog, which I know is a bonus!

Thanks, Allison & Mike!
