I remember visiting Nantucket for the first time when I was around 10 years old. From a young age, I was smitten with architecture and interiors. Nantucket provided such great eye candy for my Midwestern roots. The grand homes with Greek Revival architecture mixed with the cozy quaintness of the historic Quaker cottages provided such a contrast to my usual rambling ranch, cul-de-sac surroundings. My cousin Ames, who smoked a pipe and looked like a character out of a Hemingway novel, corrected me as I was oohing and ahhing over these dwellings and mistakenly called them, “homes.” He astutely stated, “not all houses are homes.” It’s a truth that has stuck with me all my life.
Never has the “home” been more important and more focused than in these last two months of quarantine. Which leads me to my question:
“What makes your house a home?”
I sent an email out to my clients asking them to send some photos of their favorite space in their home and why. I will be posting this series to my Instagram account @LizRichardsRealEstate during these next few weeks. Below is a preview of these images.
Being in Quarantine we are appreciating our spaces more now than ever! I hope everyone is enjoying various aspects of their home which they may have taken for granted prior to COVID-19.
Sending much love and, as always, if you want to rap with me in detail about the market and what various economic experts and I are forecasting, just call or email. I’m always happy to provide some market stats and expand on the nuances of our Denver market.
