Christiana’s good friend, Lora, is living my life (or at least the one I want). She recently renovated this little cottage and I love all the little touches she’s used in the house. You can immediately tell from the outside that the inside will have a lot of class and style. And I’m amazed what a big difference the mullioned windows make to the change of the look of the house. It goes from common to craftsman instantly. And she made a rake of beautiful internal changes but I was especially impressed that she didn’t really change anything structurally — just brought out the beauty of what was already there. A perfect example: the wood-burning stove below.
