James & Shanna’s Comfortable and Cozy North Carolina Home — House Call

I rented this two-story bungalow near downtown and a block from a park, and started outfitting it with mid-century finds from Craigslist and thrift stores. I’ve shared pictures of our favorite rooms: the living and dining rooms where we spend most of our time, plus a peek at the kitchen and landing. The house is rough around the edges – the wood floors are scuffed and nothing is level. Contact the editors through our House Tour Submission Form.

When I moved from Los Angeles to Durham, North Carolina for a job at Merge Records, I was excited to be able to have an entire place of my own. Our home is inspired by the places we’ve lived and visited, and a desire for comfort, entertaining, and minimizing cleaning! Thanks, James Shanna! When my girlfriend Shanna moved in, she complemented my tendency towards minimalism with plants and textiles and Bailey – her “Carolina Brown Dog” rescue.
