It began like any other renovation project. On Monday the work started in this charming 1940's apartment. Since the beginning, the owner and I got along very well on how the apartment should look.
The design idea behind the renovation was to keep this gem looking like it was built in the 1940's and it never got old. Then I learned who once lived in the apartment and a feeling of excitement and honor crept up my spine. Honestly, I will never forget this feeling.
How many people get the possibility to work and be in the house where W. E. B. Du Bois once lived, studied and fought for justice, where meetings took place that changed the course of the history?
