Today in Home Much For This Room? we’re heading up to Fayetteville, New York to hang out with Tara Hogan of INK + WIT to see her brand new kitchen and the adjacent dining area. Tara is a successful freelance graphic designer who has impeccable taste and her well edited, beautiful space really highlights this fact. Tara also authors a new blog where she muses about her inspirations and where she keeps her loyal customers updated as to what she’s doing currently at INK + WIT. Tara and her husband just moved into their home a little over two years ago, it’s 102-years-old and has some great features, including a wood burning stove in their dining area that has been there for around 70 years! Let’s take a look around…
About this space Tara says, “We have been fixing this place up non stop. There was awful laminate in the kitchen and no style. The walls in the kitchen are still not done, hence a yellow glow you see which still needs new white paint but I feel the images show off the good additions we have made so far like the quartz countertop, fridge and restoration of things like molding, lights, and white paint.”
