Amy, her husband and their 3 children relocated to NC, and built this wonderful home. They moved into it in August of 2009. Amy, who has a design degree, has always been attracted to dark colored homes and wanted something different than the surrounding houses. She tells first-time visitors to look for the "chocolate" house, and it's easy to find!
Amy describes her home as "a work in progress." Aren't they all? She's shopping for art, adding to the landscaping, and decorating other rooms. I'm hoping she'll let us come back and "visit" again as she completes some of the other spaces.
My favorite things about Amy's house: the front door (love the seeded glass), the gorgeous grasscloth wallpaper in the dining room, the soapstone kitchen countertops, and that great porch. I can't wait to be there in person sipping a glass of sweet tea! If you've been following my blog, I don't need to tell you that I love the carrara marble and bridge faucet in her master bathroom!
I would love to hear what you like about Amy's house. And, if you have any questions for her, please leave a comment.
