Does your house tell a story?

The story of a house. Landscape Designer extraordinaire Tara Dillard says it best. The narrative. Tara designs gardens that tell a story. I work with houses. Story-telling. Narratives. Narratives are wonderful.

The golden codfish overdoor, above,  is part of the narrative of my little Cape Cod summer cottage. Don’t get me wrong, I am not talking about going overboard with a cloying theme for your house.  No “Welcome to the Beach” signs over the sink.  I am talking about a simple story-line, a thread, a narrative.  A narrative is how I say “welcome to the beach.” Here is my narrative.  What story does your house tell?

  1. Wonder what pics I would take of your home, sharing its narrative as seen thru my eyes. XO T
