Name: Caitlin
Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota

My husband and I had been searching for a house to buy on and off for a little over a year. For so long our list of priorities/needs/wants didn't pan out until this house. My husband couldn't come to the open house so I called up my mom and she attended it with me. I called my husband and said WE HAVE TO BUY THIS HOUSE. We made an appointment for a showing that evening right after work and we made an offer that night!

We tend to buy/acquire things that we love without really paying attention to any specific style or era, although we love Mid Century

Favorite items/rooms and what we are proud of: The entire main floor? We haven't had a chance to furnish most of the basement yet (it's huge) and our main floor is so full of light and space! Our favorite item (and one we are very proud of) is probably our dining room table, which we made out of reclaimed barn wood and table legs from Etsy (Territory Design - which we found through Apartment Therapy).

A close second would be the light pink wall oven and counter stove - original to the house and almost 60 years old! We also have a straight up "Mad Men" bar in the basement - decked out with heating lamps for food too!

Thanks, Caitlin!
