today’s renovation reminds me of the house i grew up in, which makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. when my parents bought the house in 1976 it was a small cape cod, much like the before version in today’s transformation. two major additions and countless color changes later they’ve got themselves an expanded cape just as lovely as today’s terracotta home. the georgian designers raised the roof thus raising the resale value. they also landscaped, reworked the color palette, added dentil moudling to the fireplace, and specified modern furnishings. terracotta’s designs always feel like home, but today’s conjure up the smell of my mom’s detergent, and the sound of dad’s slippers on the carpet.
