Some of us appreciate the richness and wisdom of the old yet recognize the value in upgrading certain key parts of a home taking into consideration future resale value. Trying to, 'stay current,' with cutting edge trends and updates in your home may feel similar to trying to, 'stay current,' with the latest and greatest phone or computer technology.
I always ask myself–'how does it feel,' when I walk into a home–is the intention to feel warm and welcoming with a well taken care of yet a lived in flare or, is it more for entertaining, appearance and impression rather than serviceability. And, is there really such a thing as 'timeless,' when it comes to describing the outdated? I think so!
Recently I was in a home built in 1923 with period fixture updates, a refreshed kitchen and bathroom and intelligent heating. The home shared a feeling of warmth and preserved period history with upgrades tastefully done in two key business savvy spaces …the bathroom and kitchen. So I guess it is true, you can have timeless warmth and fancy exhibition all at the same time.
