I love a good contest as y’all might know. I won a gift basket from Whole Foods a few months ago when we first got one in Columbia…and I’ve been featured on another awesome blog, which is cool! One of my favorite blogs Design*Sponge asked folks to share pictures of their favorite old homes, old house features, etc., I knew just what to share…enter my creepy/awesome office.
Several months ago I started a new job and was quickly employed in a couple of the most stunning old southern buildings in downtown Columbia, SC. All historically registered (and possibly haunted considering my early mornings alone in these buildings…), they’re pretty spectacular. And I supposed Design*Sponge agreed since they posted one of my Instagram shots on their blog!
I am a serious lover of old houses jam packed with character. Wide molding. Hardwood floors. Grand staircases. Plantation shutters. Crystal doorknobs. It’s all amazing. But these stairs look like they’re headed into a really good (or scary) story, and either way, I love them.
Do you like old houses or think they’re terrible? I love the porches and the stories they tell. Even if you don’t know their story, you can create a pretty spectacular one in your head, which I like to do. New houses aren’t really my taste…I love charm. And ghosts.
