Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to live in Greece. But I didn’t want 1 of those modern white rectangle houses that is more glass than wall built on the cost. I wanted a historic house that genuinely fit the land that it was built in, a representation of the culture which it belonged to. In the beginning, I was looking at outdated stone cabins, but I found these were a little too outdated ever for me. In the end, I settled on an Mediterranean manor that was built in the early 20s. Not quite older than anything I had seen back in the United States, but not so current that it didn’t assume love myself and others anymore. However, I knew that none of our furniture would even remotely work. That was fine, because I didn’t method on flying over with anything more than what I deemed genuinely essential to our life. I was eager for a modern start, and furnishing a whole modern house to match it. But the concern with buying a house that wasn’t quite current but not quite old was that finding furniture which fit the style seemed impossible. Finally, someone at the grocery store was kind enough to propose a local furniture craftsman in town. This custom made furniture store has been in the family for several generations and specializes in custom made furniture for certain historical time periods. The lead designer was able to find exactly the style I was looking forward, and took the time to help myself and others find what I loved. Six weeks later, our Mediterranean manor is appealing inside and out.
