Toni and Patrick, graduate students at the University of Florida, had both spent a lot of time in student housing. So when they began attending UF, they were looking for something special. Toni writes, "When we found this place with the wood floors, exposed brick, two fireplaces, front porch, great windows, and claw foot tub, we were thrilled."
Toni and Patrick live on the first floor of this 1920s house, which was originally a parsonage. The couple notes that they love living within walking distance of downtown Gainesville. She also notes that they are homebodies who love spending lots of time reading, watching movies, cooking, and playing with their dog.
When asked to describe their style, Toni explains, "Patrick and I both really enjoy looking for random stuff in thrift stores/ on Craigslist/ on the curb when we aren't too busy with school. I don't know how to define our style, since it's mostly dependent on what other people are getting rid of. Vintage, retro, kitschy, oddball... Nothing new in the blogosphere but our friends and family think it's pretty cool." I have to agree with Patrick and Toni's family and friends: their style is definitely pretty darn cool!
