Athena's Home That Puts the Urban in Suburban

Name: Athena
Location: Blaine, Minnesota (suburban Minneapolis!)

My husband and I built our home about 15 minutes from our favorite neighborhood in Minneapolis. We wanted good schools and a big yard, so we settled in the suburbs.

We did not, however, want a home that looked or felt suburban so we opted for a bright open floor plan, clean neutral colors, and minimalist inspired decor. From inside the home it's impossible for people to tell we live in the 'burbs - the home looks more like and airy urban loft. And that's exactly how we like it.

Thanks, Athena!
