When Bonnie and Bill went looking for a home almost ten years ago, their family was about to double in size. Expecting twin girls, and both PhD students at the time, they bought the house “on a prayer and a song,” hoping it would be big enough to contain their growing family. Nearly a decade later, every inch of their home has been lived in and loved. The rooms overflow with art and music and the evidence of its making: cans of neatly packed together marker pens and brushes; instruments and their cases propped in every room as comfortably as the furniture itself. And the style of that furniture is simple and clean—modern classics mixed with vintage finds—so that even with the abundance of joyful stuff, the house feels orderly and purposeful.
