B O N N I E M A N O R
is a Queen Anne Victorian that was built in 1912 by O.C. Leigh. It is located in the small town of Eupora, Mississippi; which just so happens to be the hometown of Kristian. She grew up passing by this house, admiring it from afar, and in 2020 she jumped at the opportunity that fell at her feet to save it and make it her home. The previous owners, the Gary Family, loved this house and this town, which is apparent in the amazing condition of the original architectural features in the house and the memories that locals share about Bob and Bonnie. After purchasing the house, Kristian wanted to give the house an official name to start its new life and knew it just had to be "Bonnie" for Mrs. Gary and for how beautiful everyone said the house was. ("bonnie" in Scottish Gaelic means "pretty").
Kristian is currently in the beginning of restoring and renovating Bonnie Manor with plans to restore as much of the original features as possible while also making this old gal function for her family in this day and time, but most importantly honoring The Gary Family and giving back to her beloved hometown.

ORIGINAL PAINT COLORS
(this section in progress)
During demolition of unoriginal materials, Bonnie showed her true colors. Here are documented all of the original colors found along with color matches to popular paint brands and even paint formulas to get that exact shade from 1912. Many of these colors will be used in the restoration work of the house and have heavily influenced the renovation designs. There are also a few favorites shown of later paint colors that most likely were done by Bonnie herself when her family purchased the house in the 60s and did minor renovations. After all, every single one is a part of her story.
