recent tour of Heidi and Kirk's place (sent to us by photographer Hope Johnstone, Heidi's sister) - it was of a wonderful mid-century house in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Well, either Siloam Springs is a hot bed of interesting, cozy design or it just runs in Hope's family - she's sent us another tour, this time of the apartment that her other sister, Harmony, shares with her husband...
Amandromeda, so there is endless inspiration downstairs. Favorite Element: Getting to wake up and seeing the original tin ceiling every morning. The bedrooms were originally offices so the doors still have the glass windows on them. Vance proposed in to me in our home and that makes it a great place. Biggest Challenge: The triangular shape of the living space. Mama always said, "work with what ya got," and so we're doing that. We’ve separated the living room into many sitting areas: Reading, sitting and screening area for movies, one of our favorite hobbies. Having a triangle to work with became a fun challenge since now we have lots of seating for parties and guests. What Friends Say: "It's so you guys!" (There are other historic buildings next to us and pigeons that hang out on those roofs) “That pigeon is looking at me!” Biggest Embarrassment: No storage space for laundry supplies and brooms. We have a washer/dryer combo that was built into a closet so there is a door that covers that area but we keep the cleaning supplies and tools out in the open next to that closet. Proudest DIY: Our place was totally re-done before we moved in so the only upgrade we had to do was to hang a shower curtain. We are pretty pathetic with power tools so that was a very proud moment and a fun project for us as newlyweds. Biggest Indulgence: Yard Sales are a big deal in our town, they happen every weekend and there isn’t a road you can drive on that you wouldn’t see one. We always come home with something fun to add to our home. This has been a favorite pastime of mine; this is where most of my treasures have been found. Best advice: Make your home a place you like coming home to. Dream source: The World's longest yard sale that goes from Ohio to Alabama. We have never been, but it sounds amazing.
