There’s the starter home, the family home, and then, perhaps, the “grown-up” home. As the nest empties, it may be time for the latter. A homeowner in Charlotte embraced that change, moving to a newly renovated house in the historic Eastover neighborhood that only needed some tweaking to make it just right. With one tap on her mobile phone, she connected to her sister, Atlanta interior designer Carter Kay, to help ease the transition. “We were ready to rethink the way we live,” says the homeowner, “and that was the driving force behind the move. We wanted to leave our more traditional floor plan behind and instead have indoor-outdoor living options and spacious rooms to host everyone.”
The backyard offers the essence of indoor-outdoor living—a covered porch, separate areas for entertaining, and a beautiful pool.
