Product Details

The Originals shares places that have a story, a past past – places that have captured the imagination. And owners that have embraced the imperfections, respected the structure, the simplicity and the quirkiness and created highly individual and to quote homeowner Sarah Blair, "unsuburban" homes. To ignore the old sometimes is to fail to acknowledge the ties that connect all of us. There is a movement to return to simplicity whether retaining and restoring an older home or building a contemporary home in a kinder way to the environment. The more virtual the world, the quicker the pace, the more we are going to want a crafted home. We are all craving the stuff of dreams. Your home is your story and it’s an ongoing story, make it last forever.
