New England Farmhouse Home Tour | Follow along as a 1980s colonial fixer upper gets a complete DIY makeover and is renovated to reflect character and charm.
Welcome to our home tour! While our home is a work in progress, I’m excited to share what we have accomplished so far! These are photos from primarily the first floor of the house.
We purchased our home in July of 2012 in the suburbs of Boston. It’s in a beautiful neighborhood of 1980s/90s colonials, but each house still manages to have its own very unique character. While the house lured us in with incredible curb appeal and a flat lot, it was undeniable that the interior needed some updates. You can read this post to see the original before photos of the house.
Our main goal for this house is to create an old-world aesthetic inside and out. We love antique homes, but with a young family felt we wouldn’t have the time to renovate and maintain one. We instead opted to purchase a newer home and add the charm we craved.
