What I Love About My Home

I love that it is in a populated neighborhood but feels like it's out in the country. I also really really love my bathroom.

Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home

The rooms are long, and there are basically only 2 of them.

Would have loved to see the bathroom since you really really love it.

What a lovely, serene space! I love all of the unique vintage furniture, and the airy feeling the colors give. Well done!

i do wish you had more pictures of the actual rooms and fewer closeups on little vignettes (although i really love everything you've shown). just want to see the kitchen and the bathroom!

Amazing! Very well curated. I especially love the little corner with the wire chair + room divider.

This could have been a winner if it weren't for picture 3 and 4. Wish they could have been replaced by pics of the kitchen and bathroom which I'm sure are beautiful.

Thanks, everyone! Claire, all of the linens are vintage. I agree, I need pics of the bathroom and kitchen but they are so tiny it's hard to capture. I love my bath because it's got a window with beautiful light and a view and it just feels great, not necessarily because its pretty :)

I totally love it except for the dead animal rug, I found those so disturbing.

It looks beautiful but I'm wondering if it is comfortable to live in, too...

I was so excited to see the bathroom Scarlett lovingly mentioned...what a shame it isn't pictured. Great use of the space though. And love the duality of the urban atmosphere and country escape!

Love the rustic-chic style you have going in this place. If my husband would let me, I'd buy a cowhide rug for our (admittedly) soft and feminine dining room. I think it would toughen it up.

Nice place!

Points for the hand sketch that includes door openings!

I spent some time on another entry trying to figure out how the floorplan was working - no doors shown on the sketch.

This sketch is crude, but it has LOTS of great information in it. Good job! (says the person who sketches buildings in order to draw them on the computer...)

My favorite so far, although I agree that the lack of kitchen/bath photos was disappointing. Beautiful, beautiful space.

Mello1 - It's a matter of taste. What a rude and unnecessary comment.
