Recently I re-connected with Laura, a distant cousin. I discovered that she has a great blog called “A Nurse and A Nerd,” which among other things chronicles the major renovations she and her husband are doing on their home. Spring is here (finally? maybe?) and I have been poring over “house books” for months, anticipating the work Shaun and I will do on our 100+ year old home this year. Laura and her husband are doing a beautiful job on their house, and their photos are being added to my folder of inspirations for my own home. So I asked her: how does she come up with a vision for a room? She wrote a whole blog post in response, which was pretty cool and very helpful.
