and Grace bought their 1920s style bungalow in Haddon Heights, NJ back in December 2010 when it was in need of some serious TLC. But the /carpenter couple the two saw the potential and history it possessed and chose to restore it to its former Craftsman glory. (Rachel spent the last year working with before turning freelance, and Tyler has his own residential remodeling business, .) With that in mind they chose to decorate minimally to highlight the home’s original and new architectural details and mouldings. Their next project is renovating the kitchen, but that will have to wait until after their baby arrives. Many thanks to Rachel and to for the wonderful photos! –
