Old West neighborhood — Durham, North Carolina
I just moved to North Carolina from Oklahoma City 5 months ago. I had purchased my first house there a year prior and had begun to renovate and settle in when an opportunity arose to move across the country on short notice for a job — and I just couldn't resist the adventure. I had to edit down my possessions to move from a 1,000 square foot house to a 590 square foot duplex, but it was all worth it.
The duplex was built in 1920 and has great bits of character that reminded my of my 1920s bungalow back in OKC. I tried to let those shine, but not let anything get too precious or serious. Obviously I'm a huge sucker for mid-century lines, but I've tried to cozy it up a bit. Also, I'm only 26, so I'm still defining my style and finding pieces that will hopefully last a lifetime.
