I have finally gotten around to showing you our new house. Now that we have been living here a couple of months we are settled in and getting used to our new neighborhood. I wanted to show you some of the things that charmed us into having this house be our first home. It is smaller than we were hoping for our first home so we have taken to calling it our starter house. I hope you can see why we like it!
This is what it is like to have frames hanging from ribbon. It looks really elegant. I like it and am glad I choose to follow the inspectors advice and use my picture rail. He told us that since the walls are plaster it would protect them if we used the picture rail instead of pounding nails into the walls. What do you think?
One of the things we liked when we initially looked at the house was these wall scones. They are really nice and add so much character to our living room. I thought that all of the light fixtures were done in good taste because they seemed to match the character of the house. Our house was built in 1933 and I think it has some arts and crafts influence, which became a really popular decorating style around that time.
This is our one and only bathroom. It was the only bathroom out of all the houses we looked at that I liked. Most of them had serious issues. One thing my picture doesnt capture is that there is an arch above the shower. It is so cute. We are hoping to either finish the attic or the basement, or maybe both and we will be putting another bathroom in. I am glad that we have never had two bathrooms and are still used to only having one.
This is one of the bedrooms, obviously it is not bubbies room. I really like our room even though it is on the small side. It can be really peaceful in there.
