Betsy and Peter have kept close to their love story, literally: they met in college, married in Saratoga Springs, NY, and now their home is just down the street from their alma mater. The family was planning to relocate to be closer to Peter’s job and had one weekend to find their house; coming back to their college hometown was a happy byproduct. Despite the varying styles of homes they toured, Peter and Betsy knew the moment they stepped into their now home that it was “the one.” Betsy had actually always wanted to live in a barn, and loved how open the spaces were. The fact that it was somehow an in-town barn made walking to restaurants and shops incredibly convenient, it had a space for an on-site design studio as well — it was the perfect fit.
On the process of building their home, Vivian said, “The construction only took about one and half years, but the house site and design decisions took much longer. In the meantime, we sold our [previous] home in Oxford, MS and renovated the basement of the home already on the property, into an apartment and lived onsite while we developed our ideas for our home. The gallery apartment now serves as guest quarters and an Airbnb location. We finally settled on the old homestead site, but first had to remove dilapidated tenant shacks… Near the house is an old well that was hand dug by the first family on this property. One of the previous homeowners visits on occasion, and recently we learned he was a 12-year-old boy when he helped his grandfather hand dig the 30-foot well.”
Growing up, there were few things I wanted more than bunk beds. Well, bunk beds and backstage passes to a New Kids on the Block concert. As an only child, bunk beds were never a realistic option, so I’ve always wanted to find a way to sneak them into my grown-up home for some reason. Until we have children I don’t think it will happen, but I keep pinning and bookmarking creative bunk beds that would work well for little ones and adults alike. So today I’m celebrating 10 of my favorites that are great reminders that bunk beds can be a fantastic way to get creative with your DIY skills — and relive some childhood decorating fantasies in a modern way. xo, grace
