Designer: Linda Lewis
Location: The Fan — Richmond, Virginia
Hi! We live in a Colonial Revival town home built in 1905 in a section of Richmond known as "The Fan". We purchased this home about two years ago and have renovated the first floor. I am an interior designer and could see the space in my head before the first drawing was prepared.
The process went extremely smoothly except when it came to knowing what to do with the floors. After a few sleepless nights it came to me — paint them. I love coming down the back staircase in the morning with the dogs to greet the day, making coffee and enjoying the view out the windows to the city scape beyond. I have the people, animals and things I love around me. What else could be better? I love to have family and friends over to gather around the island and have a good cackle over the events of the day. It is my dream home and I love to share it.
