Name: Maryann
Location: Bellevue neighborhood of Richmond Virginia

We purchased a 1926 Craftsman Bungalow - a 1 ½ story home that had not been renovated or updated in any substantial way. We did not do a period restoration; however, there are many period details that were integrated into the renovations.

We added on an 800 sq ft addition that included master bedroom, master bath, laundry room & screened porch. I worked with an architect & made a good majority of the design decisions myself & am so pleased with how it turned out. Much inspiration was gleaned from the internet (including Apartment Therapy). I think our kitchen backsplash is wonderful & a bit unusual. We used three different colors of cabinets in our kitchen & it blends so well, you might not notice. We love our kitchen & it is so much fun to cook again.

I collect chandeliers & every room of the house has a chandelier.I think the master bath is quite sophisticated & the laundry room is wonderfully "happy."

The triangle of windows in the master bedroom face due east & it is so beautiful in the morning to see the prisms from the chandelier dance on the wall as the sun rises.

Thanks, Maryann!
