Liz Seefeldt has always loved decorating. In 1990, she received an associate in occupational studies degree from the interior design program at what was then called Bryant & Stratton Business Institute.
While she never did anything with the degree, she always helped friends decorate their homes. A couple years ago she launched a small decorating business in which she specializes in restyling and accessorizing.
She recently shared photos and a description of the Town of Tonawanda home she shares with her husband and their son, 18, and daughter, 19, who is in college.
Here is what she wrote for The Buffalo News "Home of the Week" online feature.
"We moved into our home six years ago. We had long admired the well-kept homes on the quaint, beautiful tree-lined street," she wrote.
"The strictly traditional 1930s era home wasn't my taste. The decorator in me was up to the challenge of turning our house into a home more reflective of my style. I wanted to create a space that exudes warmth and comfort.
"I incorporated a more transitional French country feel in my decor. My affinity for neutrals, textures and patterns added the right amount of contrast and interest to create a cozy and homey space.
"I love that our comfortable home is located just minutes from both vibrant North Buffalo and the conveniences of the northern suburbs," she wrote.
Do you love your house enough to show it off? This could be your chance.
