The Raines Group’s My Favorite Room Blog Series takes a look at our team member’s most cherished places and spaces. Featuring a mix of hot spots and hidden gems, we hope to remind you just how special one room can really be.
Our first favorite room comes from our General Manager, Stephanie Masterson. Stephanie is a life-long resident of Central Ohio and has spent the last 18 years with The Raines Group. Stephanie currently lives in Reynoldsburg with her husband Greg, daughter Finley and son Gabe.
What is your favorite room in your home?
The Nursery (Gabe’s Room)
Why is it your favorite room?
Ironically, when I purchased my home back in 2002 this was my least favorite room. It is the smallest room in the house and features two awkward angles. It wasn’t big enough for a guest bedroom so it was used as an office for 10 years until we discovered its true purpose… a nursery. In 2012 we decorated it pink and anxiously awaited the arrival of our daughter, Finley. Her stay in this room would be short lived as after 10 months of occupancy we found out she was going to be a big sister. In January of 2014 we made a quick color change to blue and welcomed our son, Gabe. For the past 3.5 years this room has become a very special place for me and is now by far my favorite room in our home.
What do you like to do most in this room?
I love the special bonding time that occurs in this room with both of my kids. Our evenings consist of a story (or ten!) and several songs before kissing my two sweet babies good night.
What is one unique or distinctive feature of this room?
The white noise sound machine. Both my kids (and I) love it!
In one word, how would you describe this room?
