A while back, I went to a home tour nearby, and I snapped some pictures of my favorite house.
I have bought a nicer camera since then, so my pictures are not the best quality, but I thought I would still share them.
I am a sucker for the cast iron railing! It’s so striking.
Here’s the view from the top of the stairs. I love the mirror in the corner, the huge pots, and iron “decor-thing-ies”. (What would you call those?)
I loved the chairs in the bottom left corner of this picture. I am so mad I didn’t get a close-up of them!
Here’s one of the bedrooms. This is before I knew not to use my flash, and the color of the walls looks awful. It was actually the same color yellow as the rest of the house.
Here’s a cool little trick I saw in the crown molding.
This “looks” like large, expensive crown molding, but it is actually a trick to “fool” the eye. There is a small crown molding on top, and then about 5 or 6 inches down they installed a trim piece parallel to the molding on top. Then they just painted the WALL white in between the two pieces and added some little vertical trim pieces, and it looks fabulous!
This is a very inexpensive way to add a dramatic look to your crown molding. I thought it was beautiful!
Well, that’s it! Hope you enjoyed the tour.
