Location: Johns Island - Charleston, South Carolina
The house was built in the late 30's by my great grandfather. We moved our things in at the end of January last year. They sat for another two months until we were able to start living out here on a full time basis. We worked very hard for about a month cleaning, clearing and painting 3 rooms. It was not long after that we discovered that our time here was very limited and halted all subsequent plans. I am pleased with how everything turned out.
We tend to incorporate a lot of different elements in our home. This house has a very traditional feel to it and I found that we drifted in that direction when we moved in to the house. We find it to be warm and inviting. Many things were found in the trash, scored from eBay or thrifted.
We've had amazing response to our Apartment Therapy House Tour Submission Form that we launched last month. While we will work with homeowners of our favorite homes to feature full tours, we will also share the best as House Calls — short, quick tours of readers' homes. Submit your home here.
