Thanks, it's actually quite a change for us. I grew up in modern/contemporary settings, and my previous 2 homes were in that same style. Very clean and minimalist spaces. Most of the houses on our prospect list were modern/contemporary, but when we saw this one, my wife fell in love. She's half Italian, and has always dreamed of having a home that was Italian-inspired.
We've only been there for 4 weeks, but so far, I love it. It feels much warmer, much more like a home than a museum. All the spaces are so comfortable and inviting, like they want to be used rather than just admired. Also, the hearty and rustic finishes are a lot more kid and pet friendly, which has taken the anxiety level to near zero.

It's a sticker recognizing a lifetime membership to an organization that provides support to the families of policemen and firefighters who die in the line of duty. With Houston being the speed trap capitol of the US, I like the officers on the streets to know that I have supported them in their service to us.
