At The Velveteen House, we specialize in taking well-loved houses and turning them into Real homes for their next generation.
Our projects have a history and a soul, evident by their well worn grooves, layers of paint, and obvious years of love. We focus on keeping the original character of these houses, while updating them to today's standards. Our designs pay homage to the careful choices and tremendous love put into these homes by their early caretakers while designing them to stand the test of time.
"Real isn't how you are made,
It's a thing that happens to you . . .
Generally, by the time you are Real,
most of your hair has been loved off,
and your eyes drop out
and you get loose in the joints and very shabby.
But these things don't matter at all,
because once you are Real you can't be ugly,
except to people who don't understand."
