Comfortable Home Decorating IdeasFrozen Designs :
Like many couples about to start their own family, Tracy and Michael Garber were keen to leave behind the hustle and bustle of city life and move to a more rural area and want to decorating home ideas, as Tracy explains.
What attracted you to this suburb of New York?
We were after a decent-sized house in a safe area with great schools. We also wanted our new home decorating ideas to be fairly close to our families the suburb of Rye Brook ticked all the boxes, plus it’s only a 35-minute commute to Manhattan, where Michael works. The house was built in a New England architectural style that is so popular in this area; we fell in love with its simple look and we just knew it was the one for us. On a more practical note, it had enough bedrooms to accommodate a large family, plus a generous garden.
What did you do to the house when you moved in?
We began restore almost immediately. Although there was nothing incorrect with the property as it was. The layout didn’t work for us and our plans for a family. One of the first changes for home decorating ideas, we made was to knock down two walls that separated the kitchen from the dining room to form one large space. I wanted a more open feel and liked the idea of cooking in the kitchen while the children played nearby.
