So….there is one lucky family that will be able to choose where they want to live when they buy this house. I don’t know what I would choose, because I love what the possibilities are for the “bonus” space I found.
The “main house” has all of the traditional rooms you would expect to find in a home of this age (1926). It is a center hall with the stairs directly in front and dining room and living room on either side.
I would take my cue from the exterior colors of gray, black and white and carry them through. On the entryway wall, I would create a gallery wall of white/gray/black artwork.
I would consider painting the stairs white, the railing gray and carpeting the steps in gray and black.
I would definitely put this zebra print rug in the foyer that I would buy from West Elm.
A different shade of gray in the living room, and look how cute I would make those shelves look. Benjamin Moore’s Copley Gray is a warm toned gray in the greige family.
Plenty of room in the kitchen to eat, so I would make the dining room a playroom.
What I really love about this house.
#1 – This bedroom wall.
Would love to be able to dress up the window seat like this. Also paint the ceiling a soft gray with the walls a bit darker gray that would make a beautiful contrast with white woodwork.
#2 – The side porch
Bring the porch to life with flowers
#3 – The Screened Porch
Bamboo shades and outdoor drapes add privacy
OK – This is why I really love this house.
I want these doors.
In the garage, someone used old doors as partitions – I want these! And I am drooling over the work bench, even though I have never worked at a bench in my life (nor will I ever).
This is called a “rustic chic” room divider on Pinterest
OK I know where I would live – in the BIG BONUS space above the garage.
And I don’t know which look I would prefer.
Please feel free to leave comments that I may pass on to real estate agent who has this home listed.
