Before & After | Vintage-Inspired Lights Help Transform Victorian Home
Over the past three years, we have enjoyed the renovation journey shared by our friend Christina on her blog Christina’s Adventures. She and her husband have lovingly transformed their 1902 Victorian near Philadelphia into a warm, bright, and welcoming home that they share with their three young children. Today, we’re taking a look back at some impressive before-and-after photos of three of their rooms. When you see these pictures side by side, you can appreciate not only the vision that Christina had for each space, but the countless hours of work devoted to this labor of love. ... Read More
