For Courtney Webster and Brandon Aguiar, it was impossible to ignore the charm of the rich original hardwood floors and the dreamy natural light through the large leaded windows when they first checked out this apartment in Providence, Rhode Island. Just days after getting married, the couple moved into their 950 sq ft home, located in a converted textiles factory.
Rising Sun Mills was built in 1887 and produced more than 900,000 yards of worsted wool for decades, before being converted into a mixed-use building with residential apartments and commercial space. Since moving in two years ago, the couple have personalised their rented home with a mix of midcentury modern furniture and bohemian-style accents.
