Name: Stefanie Turner and family
Location: Williamston, Michigan
Type of home: Tudor
Size: 1800 square feet
Years lived in: 10+ years, owned. This has been a rental house that kind of fell apart over the last 10 years, but was previously a family home.
Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: This home has a special place in my heart because it’s been owned by my husband’s family off and on for many years. It was the first house he lived in and owned when we were dating, and the home his aunt raised her kids in.
It will always be a favorite of mine, and although it is on the smaller side, it offers so much character and charm. I did my very best to preserve most of the original features, and added more character in any space I could!
I would say the style of this home is “grandmillennial.” I wanted it to feel timeless, but unique at the same time. A lot of the items I used to decorate were thrifted, from Marketplace, hand-me-downs, or antiques. I love a mix of old and new and very much believe this is what gives a space warmth and character!
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Grandmillennial. Timeless. Charming.
What is your favorite room and why? Gosh this one is hard. I poured my heart and soul into this house, but my favorite room is probably between the kitchen or the stairway (between the mudroom and the kitchen door). It may sound odd, but I love to work within boundaries and these were both small spaces that I think I made the most of.
What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? The last thing I bought for this house was scalloped plates from Target. I love a mix of old and new… and these cutie plates felt nostalgic to me, but timeless. AND they fit this home so well!
Any advice for creating a home you love? Don’t try to copy or make your home anything but YOU. With Instagram and Pinterest so prevalent, it’s so easy to get caught up in fads, but one of my biggest goals for this house was to make it reflective of me and my style. I wanted it to feel lived in and cozy. It’s all about the feeling a space gives me, for me.
