PAIRING

Salem Home a Haven for Couple
A new marriage paired with a new house
provides the ultimate fresh start.

B

uilding a house is a stressful endeavor for any roadtested couple, but Amy Hovis and her husband of
five years, Jason Haga, did it while they were in
the midst of planning their wedding. "I'd broken
ground on this house already and was planning to
live here myself," says Hovis. "And then Jason and I finished the
house together." Five years ago, her now-husband had a home
in Roanoke County and two children who were nearly out of
the house. When they decided to make a go of marriage, the
three-bedroom patio home, tucked in a new development behind
Roanoke College, seemed like the right fit. "We got married on
April 5th, and moved in on April 7th," Hovis recalls of the busy
time.
Hovis and Haga decided not to live together before tying the
knot, so this is the first home they've shared, blending their styles
and belongings. "We had a hodgepodge of things...his style was
masculine, with black leather and oak furniture," Hovis says. "As
for my style, I knew what I liked but I didn't necessarily know how
to make it happen in this space," she says. While the materials
Hovis chose for the kitchen and bathrooms were neutral and
classic, she wanted help in creating a cohesive look, especially in
the one-level, open floor plan of her new home. She had made
purchases in the past from Magnolia, a furniture and accessories
store in Roanoke, and decided to work with owner Jessica Durham
to create the transitional, neutral-with-a-punch vibe she craved.
Durham and Hovis got to work, and became excellent partners
on the project, says Durham. "Amy has a great sense of style and
we have similar tastes-I decorate my own home with a lot of
neutrals. I tend to stick with pattern on pillows and accessories
that can be changed out easily," Durham notes. "That's what we
did here."
