our home was built in 2003, so it’s a newer home–which is good and bad. I love that it’s newer with thick windows and smooth-sliding drawers, but it doesn’t have the character of an older home. Oh how I dream of built-ins and old hardwood floors.  and our home has some nooks built into the wall that are fun, but also tricky since they have a modern feel.  i pulled everything out of the nook and gave it new life for spring I started with an old typeset drawer leaned up for background, then I layered in books, a vintage bird in flight and branches. Here’s a little video of the nook redo.

what year was your home built? does it have any decorating challenges?
