I’m Heidi. Please join me in the adventures of renovating old homes while trying to raise our young modern family. Be it renovating, DIY, gardening or the occasional craft; whatever it takes to give a space some personality. Reimagining old house living (with a wink and a smile).
I am an architect, designer, old house lover, home renovator, gardener, wife and mom. I live, work and write from our 1888 Stick Style Victorian just outside of Philadelphia that my husband and I have been slowly renovating for the last 12 years. Along with my other half Mr. S, we share our house and life with our 2 rambunctious kids, Sam & Maisie, and our 2 much less active kitties Spot & Spike.
I love color and pattern, getting my hands dirty and sketching. Whether it is my home or one of my client’s I think design should be fun and whimsical paired with practical and creative problem solving. I am a registered architect with many years (more than I want to admit to) of experience in designing and detailing buildings. I love that this blog gives me a place to share my design ideas.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed your visit and come back again soon.
P.S. I love comments and questions so feel free to drop me a line.
