My Houzz: Cozy Combination of Antiques and Art
Homeowner Theresa Lage had a common
downsizing dilemma: How do you keep all the beautiful things you have collected over the years in a significantly smaller space? Lage downsized from a 6,000-square-foot home to a 2,300-square-foot home, then moved to this charming 1,700-square-foot
home in Coral Gables, Fla. Coral Gables is in South Florida, and referred to as "The City Beautiful," known for its oak-lined streets, barrel-tiled roofs ("coral gables") and historic Mediterranean Revival architecture.
As an empty nester, Lage wanted a singl
e-level home with little maintenance. Before moving in, the kitchen, bathrooms and windows were remodeled to her specifications. Lage loves decorating with one-of-a-kind pieces and enjoys perusing antique shows and shops to bring together her passion for antiques and art.
