An Eclectic Craftsman in Washington DC

Amy and Nate Welsh’s 1920s Craftsman style home located in Northern Washington D.C. is full of character, history and charm. With the house being almost a century old, Amy + Nate knew when buying the home that some updates to the space would be needed, but the home’s covetable outdoor space and and unique front porch more than made up for it.

They’ve embraced the parts of their home that they love —the crystal doorknobs on every door, the unique details and the outdoor space large enough to plant a garden in, to name a few. For the parts of the home that need a little TLC, Amy and Nate decided to take their time making updates while enjoying their home. “We decided that over time, we could incorporate our own unique touches on the home and slowly work on upgrades over the years,” Amy says of the decision. She continues, “It’s still a work in progress, but since then we’ve really made the house our own!”

As for styling their home, Amy and Nate gravitate toward the eclectic. Mixing in patterns, textures and plenty of houseplants to make the home feel cozy and inviting. “Our first purchases were the ‘Mid-Century’ couch and colorful shag rug for the living room. Those pieces really set the tone for the first floor,” says Amy. She continues, “But my favorite piece, one that I will never part with is the farmhouse dining room table. I love to use it as a rustic backdrop for some of my Instagram photos when I’m feeling creative.” Take a tour of Amy and Nate’s eclectic home below:
