Faye’s Little Apartment in a Small Town

Name: Faye
Location: Uxbridge, Massachusetts

My husband and I just moved into a cute little apartment in a small town in Massachusetts. I am a recent Fashion graduate from Mass College of Art and Design and love all things retro/vintage with a hint of modern. Each piece of furniture in our home is a special find, usually at some amazing low prices. We shopped salvation army, local vintage retailers, Ikea, antique shops, and local artists.

I love color and thought long and hard about each individual room. Each one has its own flavor and collection of art and furniture pieces. The house is an old one and it has some wonderful features. All of the trim is the original wood and the kitchen (my favorite room) still has the original porcelain sink and white metal cupboards with magnetic closures. We had to do a few diy renovations including ripping out the ugly linoleum flooring in the bathroom and putting down a brand new floor and new walls to replace the fake tile that was falling apart. All the beautiful wood floors, which were originally just being waxed, we covered in a few layers of polyurethane.

We love our first home together and would love the opportunity to share the work and creativity we’ve put into it with everyone!

Thanks, Faye!
