In recent years, the verb “curate” has escaped the halls of museums and been used to describe the way a home is put together. Each of the homes featured here displays the owners’ commitment to selecting, organizing, and presenting their private spaces for maximum satisfaction and ease.
One couple radically reimagined the house they renovated in the 1980s so they could age in place—every facet of the new incarnation is intended to makes their lives easier. Another home—referred to as “two empty rectangles” by the husband—has been transformed into a handcrafted work of art by his wife. A beloved traditional home holds the memories of three generations of a single family; its current owners regularly renew their vow to preserve its craftsmanship and architectural integrity. Finally, a house previously deemed “hideous” has become a home now proclaimed “magical” by its owner. Four very different homes with one common denominator—the owners poured their hearts into creating places that bring them joy every time they cross the threshold.
