Name: Karen Goodman
Location: Natick, Massachusetts (just outside Boston)

My husband, two cats and I have lived in this 114+ year old home for almost four years. Records show it was first deeded in 1900 but we suspect that it was built earlier. It’s small, but just the right size for our little family — just over 1100 square feet.

Over the years as the home was updated, it was also stripped of a lot of its vintage charm. I’ve taken it upon myself to add some vintage features back into the home. I’ve added subway tiles in the kitchen, a picture rail in the dining room and a floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcase in the living room.

I love filling my home with antiques, refurbished and repurposed items, and discovered treasures, mixing them all with new.

Not only does my old home have a history to tell, but a lot of the pieces have a story as well!
