When Alex and Danny Vega-Zweydoff moved into their new townhome, they had a pretty good idea about how they wanted the space to look and feel. So, as it was under construction, they were busy planning… and buying. “We purchased almost everything ahead of time,” Alex said. “Our old house was an older home built in the 1970s, so there were a lot of dark colors, a lot of wood trim. We wanted our new home to be light and airy, to catch the natural light we get in the morning and late afternoon.”
There’s plenty of room for all the activity in this open kitchen. The place settings are from “mi abuela,” Danny said, purchased in NYC right after she arrived from Cuba. Merry Christmas sign and placemats from HomeGoods.
Christmas ornaments are very important in Alex’s family. “A family tradition, actually” he said. This ornament was a gift from his mother last year. “And that’s a real tree!” he added.
