Cute house: Do this to it!

Wow, what a year it’s been. I have been quiet on the blog because our market is hot and homes aren’t available long enough to put together my typical inspiration posts. On that note, if you are thinking of selling, DO NOT hesitate. If you price your home properly and take the time to make it shine prior to Listing, it will sell- hopefully with multiple offers! And if you are thinking of buying, interest rates still are at record lows. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved.

While scrolling through the low inventory of homes on the market, this sweet 1920’s property caught my eye. It has so much character and potential! Want to see what I’d do if it were mine?!

I’d for sure update the front door and light situation. Paint the trim a more neutral color.

This covered porch is screaming for a hanging swing!

How lovely is the entry…

So much potential!

Hang the curtains high and wide to accentuate the tall ceilings. Paint the French doors black to make them stand out.

Check out the original Craftsman style fireplace. This would be a cozy spot to warm up this winter.

Go all out and add a coffered ceiling.

The dining room and that arched built in!!

The kitchen doesn’t look too bad as-is. An unlacquered brass faucet and handles would really make it feel more fitting to the 1920’s.


Or go all out with a new kitchen..

I’m obsessed with stone sinks and plaster wall treatments at the moment.

I love the angles and windows in this room!

Why not go for some bold wallpaper?

More plastered walls, please!

The details on this stonework seem more fitting for a 1920’s home.

Love the big trees and the garden!

So what do you think? What would you do differently? And more importantly, do you want to make this your new home? Don’t hesitate to call me for a showing because it probably won’t be around for long.

*Home is active on the market at the time of this post. If you read this at a later date, the home may be sold or off the market. Contact me to for more information or to find a similar home. All opinions are my own. And of course, there is nothing wrong with this house as it is.. I just got inspired to show what I would do.
