Katie Bowling/ One Delightful Home
Turning a 1960s home into a haven for a family of five isn’t an easy feat. But for Katie Bowling, founder of One Delightful Home, it was one worth doing. Over the past three years, Katie and her husband, Philip, have been working on transforming their traditional Southwest Virginia abode into a space that they can enjoy and use to host Airbnb guests. Built in 1963, the property features historical details, large wooden windows and an elevator they didn’t expect to work. While embracing the original designs of their Burlington home, the husband-wife duo weaved in modern, eclectic and rustic elements to turn this former student lodge into a bright, colorful and relaxing retreat.
