When it comes to renovating old homes, Dorie Understiller likes to “walk in, take a second, and listen.”

“Your house will talk to you,” she says. When she first walked into this space, she found a Victorian fireplace in a bungalow, and in the wrong spot, and “we just wanted to put it back and bring back its original feel.”

She and her husband put the fireplace back in the corner, ditched the ornate Victorian mantle, and furnished the room with cozy, vintage-inspired finds that felt like the home’s original era.

“That’s how things always end up working best,” Dorie says.
