A House Restored: They Saw the Vision of this 1846 House
The fully restored home now features the best of both the past and present. Mo’s personal favorite is the kitchen. The combination of stainless steel appliances, wood countertops, and original brick create an eclectic but classy ambiance. She is greeted every morning by a favorite saying of hers: “Make the life you want” etched out in glowing violet letters. The home’s original pocket doors give the space flexibility. Open the doors, and the house has an open floor plan — living room and kitchen flowing seamlessly together. Close the doors and the kitchen becomes an intimate chat room.
The collection of artwork also gives the home a modern yet personal touch. Mo has a story for each piece. “The last thing you want is to have a piece of art and not be able to talk about it,” Mo says. “Know about the artist, know about the story.” Her collection consists of work from her travels, friends, favorite artists, and even her own.
Mo’s shop, Revelry, caters to all things local. She sells handmade art, furniture and accessories – all created by local artists. She likes to think Revelry has something for everyone, from college students to high-end art collectors. And the best part is every purchase goes directly to support a neighborhood artist. Her business mantra: “You have to be 100 percent passionate about what you’re doing, or it won’t work.”
