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.

  1. The only thing good about that dog one is the dog (and that cool white window pane thingy). I grew up in an old house (now 120 years old, so, duh, i love them) that my mom has done wonders with it! She should have posted pictures to this contest!
