Meet the Owners

Lindsey Cheek, co-owner of Poplin & Queen Interiors and a blogger at Fifi Cheek, and Grayson Cheek, an attorney, say their 1917 cottage in Wilmington, N.C., was the last "bad" house on a great block. They bought the home, which they now share with their daughter, Tilley-Gray, in 2009, right after a couple of local contractors got it into "selling shape." Their nesting budget was tight at the time, but there was still a ton of work they wanted to do.
