Home of the Month: Andy + Candis of Old Home Love

Home of the Month: Andy + Candis of Old Home Love

Happy Friday friends! I’m so glad you’re here because boy do I have a fun post for you today!!! You know the Home of the Month posts are my favorite and this one is extra special! I’m so excited for you to meet Andy and Candis – bloggers, authors, TV stars and old home savers! Truly my idols and my dream life/job!

Let me back up a little bit and tell you how I came to know this lovely couple. I love houses obviously but I especially love old homes. I could walk around the streets of cities like Charleston, SC endlessly admiring the history and craftsmanship of the old homes. I came across Old Home Love’s Instagram feed (before I knew there was a book and TV show in the works) and immediately fell in love with their very large and adorable family and the stories of the old homes they were restoring. I then started following their blog and came to know the HGTV/DIY Network show and pre-ordered their book.

Needless to say I was smitten. And not only do they do gorgeous work they are also hilarious and I love reading their words about family and the renovation process. One day I hope I have the opportunity to restore an old home at least once and experience what it’s like to breath life back into a structure that is so much more than four walls.

In their blog and book, Andy and Candis share many of their projects including the renovation of their own home affectionately named the Love House. Welcome….

The Love House Exterior Before and After.

Can you believe where they started and how the finished exterior turned out? Amazing, and the paint color is one of my all-time favorites! You can see all the before pictures HERE.

Now let’s move on to the interior.

Not only do they restore as much of the home to it’s original condition as possible, they also tailor the decor to that era. They stay true to the home, through and through. You can read more about the story behind the Love House HERE. Oh and Andy and Candis got married at the Love House, hence the name :)

Not only have they restored the Love House but they have saved so many other homes destined for destruction. Here are a few of their other projects:

The Lemmon-Dixon House

The Healing House

The Joe Jackson House

Smoot Family Home

They even bought an old school house to restore! I mean how cool is that?!

And now for the good news! I’m giving away a copy of the Old Home Love book to one of my lucky Instagram followers! You guys, if you haven’t seen this gorgeousness of a book you’ve got to check it out! It’s monstrous and full of beautiful homes and stunning rooms. The perfect coffee table book for old home lovers and the stories behind each project are truly inspiring. It seriously makes me want to go find an old home and start renovating NOW. So head over and follow my Instagram feed to enter the giveaway and I’ll announce the winner on Sunday evening!

A huge THANK YOU to Andy and Candis for letting me share their work but more importantly for saving these pieces of history to live on for another 100 years! Make sure to follow their blog and Instagram for more of their story and jump on Amazon now and buy this book! I promise you will not regret it! You can also check out their HGTV/DIY Network show HERE.

Cheers and have a great weekend! See you in May!
