Sarah & Alex's Civil War Era Home

Name: Sarah & Alex
Location: Columbia, Missouri

We fell in love with our rental's great architecture features the second we walked in. The house was built during the Civil War Era and still has its original hardwood floors! This is the first time my boyfriend and I have lived together, so we wanted a house we could call home, together. Unlike most men, he too likes interior design, so while we have had our battles (all over art!) we both take great pride in our home.

I am a religious Apartment Therapy reader and my tastes have greatly developed because of AT =D. I would say our interior style is mid century modern. Almost everything is a craigslist or flea market steal.

Our Paolo Piva coffee table was a find on craigslist for only $75! During my hunts I have also found two ikea klappsta chairs for $150 (for the both of them), a Zou Modern Andromeda chair for $150, and the Zenith credenza was a flea market find I got for $25!

I think its safe to say I'm a craigslist/ bargain hunter addict ;).

Thanks, Sarah & Alex!
