Let’s talk about your home! You currently live in an Austin townhome that you bought in 2009. What sold you on purchasing this particular home?
My poor realtor must have shown me over 100 houses, and I finally landed on this one. I was looking for something that wasn’t going to require too much work, yet was still customizable to my style. I took a risk and bought something a little further from downtown Austin than I originally wanted, but at the rate Austin was growing, I knew it wouldn’t be long before everything started moving out this way as well—luckily, I was right! Other contributing factors were the fact that it's minutes away from the best Target in town and it has a ton of closet space.
How has your home changed since you first purchased it? Did you have to undergo any major renovations?
It’s certainly seen a lot of paint jobs! Luckily, I haven’t had to do any major renovations, but I’ve painted every room and bathroom [some even twice] and have had all of the cabinets painted as well. A couple of years ago, I replaced the backsplash in my kitchen and had the cabinets painted white. My living room, dining room, and kitchen are pretty much one big open area, so that small change completely transformed the entire space. All in all, I would say that my style has been the thing that’s changed the most over the years, and it’s fun [and funny] to look back at old pictures and see the evolution.
