The Abode was established in 2013 fulfilling my life long dream of owning a business.  Having always had a passion for home decorating which included scouring junk shop for unique finds over 30 years ago to now spending most days knee deep in paint, the quiet goal always was to create a beautiful home on a reasonable budget.
