Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: This house is truly special to us, as it is our first home. It wasn’t in perfect shape when we bought it and it has come a long way since then. We have transformed almost every corner of this house in some way or the other. It required a lot of time, effort, planning, patience, and struggle. But when we look at it now, we thank ourselves for taking the leap.

Any advice for creating a home you love? Do not be afraid to use color. The exterior of a home is as important as its interior, as it reflects your style and sets the tone of your home.
