BY AMY For my husband and I, home is a feeling. As people who love to entertain as much as we love spending nights curled up on the sofa—escaping from our laptops and to-do lists—it was initially tough on us when we traded our 700-square-foot condo for a house. Over the course of our home-hunt we toured more than 30 properties, but when we pulled up to this quaint semi-detached on a tree-lined street, we instantly knew it was the one. What we didn’t know was that it would take far longer to make it feel like home than we anticipated. Outfitted in fresh paint that inspires us and filled with comfortable, neutral pieces that support our busy schedules, the living/ dining area is now our sanctuary. At the dining table, we come together after work to share our victories—big and small. Life may never stop evolving, but when friends pop by for a spontaneous wine and cheese night that trails into the early morning, having comfortable chairs to host us is a small luxury we don’t take for granted.
