Mandy (owner and designer at Manman Studios) and Aaron Lehman share their Victorian Italianate destination home in Dayton, Kentucky. Used as a primary residence and available to rent as an Airbnb, event space or photo location, the home features lots of light, a finished loft, and a separate artists studio.
Our dream was to have a home that acted like a true community center. On any given day, we have people coming in and out for different reasons. Someone might stop by to meet with me about a design project; then later a neighbor will pop by for a tour.” They’ll often host out-of-town guests in their rental unit, and sometimes local ad agencies will use the space for a photo shoot. “We have an open-door vibe in every area of our lives, this house included,” Mandy says.
