Our home is the Buffalo News‘ “Home of the Week” this week on their online version of the newspaper. You’ve seen the garden (ad nauseam) but this is a chance for us to invite you inside.

You can see the online gallery of photos of different rooms here.

Home & Style Editor Susan Martin writes:
“The garden at Jim and Leslie Charlier’s home has been a must-see for years during the annual Garden Walk Buffalo. It has been featured in numerous national publications, including This Old House, Backyard Solutions and Fine Gardening.  

This week, we take a look at the inside of their home, with its local artwork, colorful walls and handcrafted items. Jim Charlier runs JCharlier Communication Design and is a former president (2006-2013) of Garden Walk Buffalo. He also writes a gardening blog, ArtofGardening.org.  

Leslie Charlier is an international flight attendant. Their daughter, Margaux, is a college sophomore.  

Here is how Jim Charlier described their place for our latest Home of the Week online feature for the Home & Style section of The Buffalo News: “The house is a 1897 Dutch Colonial, defined by its gambrel roof and rounded half tower.  “Most artwork, inside and out, is either made by me, our friends or local artists – including the lightning-bolt-shaped lightning rod by metal sculptor Mark Griffis.  

“We purchased the home, only one house in from Elmwood Avenue, in 2001. The previous owners had done a great job of modernizing the kitchen and utilities and had work done to each room – very tastefully – but just not our more colorful taste.  “It’s been called ‘the cartoon castle’ by some friends. We’re still friends,” he wrote.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.
