Emily's Infusion of Personality

House Call

Name: Emily
Location: Charlotte, North Carolina

We moved into our builder box of a house a little over two years ago. My immediate goal was to do all I could to give it a personality of its own, so that it didn't feel like every other house in our neighborhood. I've furnished about 90% of our house with purchases from Craigslist, thrift shops and yard sales.

I'm a huge fan of color in strong doses, in the right places. I do like our home because although it's new, the floor plan isn't so open that I have to treat it all as one big room. I was able to give each room it's own unique plan, tying it all together with an eclectic mix of styles and unexpected color.

Thanks, Emily!
