The home of the Brown Family is a quaint brick house built by Phoenix McKie and located in Green Forest at Knollwood Subdivision. The home has undergone a total transformation from its original purchase five years ago to the special home that Brown envisioned for her family.
This four-bedroom home is trendy, eclectic and decorated with a young heart and attitude in mind. The children’s bedrooms were designed to portray the personalities of the daughter and two sons. On a hall wall, Brown delights in displaying objects of achievement of all three children of whom she is very proud.
Throughout the house, the furniture and furnishings have been purchased on unique finds. Most of the shabby chic and farmhouse furniture in the home has been refurbished by Brown.
Also, the home features many wall murals painted by Brown. The interior decorating, the sewing, and Christmas decorations are designs of the homeowner’s creative and artistic talents.
The Brown family wishes your family a very Merry Christmas.
