Decade Born: 1960s
“Open your eyes and let the light in.”
The memories that you’re building in a place like this, how do they compare to the memories you had growing up?
With this little beach cottage, it’s the historic feeling. I grew up in an old turn-of-the-century house that belonged to the President of the University of Indianapolis downtown. My father renovated every square inch of it. It was a different type of house and it was a little bit of a heavier house.
When I was younger- this is a funny story- I remember picking up a TIME magazine and there were some great pictures of interiors. There was a woman with a big white dog and everything white and I remember telling my mother, ‘I’m going to live in an all white house,’ so here it is. This isn’t the first one either. I’ve been renovating houses for a while, but it’s kind of become my meej. But the common thread with this and the house I grew up in is that it’s historic- it’s an old 1940s motor lodge.
