Love this but am totally drawn to the ceilings. Saved quite a few of the photos for future ideas. Looks like a wonderful home in which to live.

Many times on the Before and After, I kinda like the before better. This one could only improve with aide. Very nice. That poor piece of furniture is much happier now.

I am quite sure that the majority of my noisy neighbors (along with the ones that refuse to pick up their newspapers or dog poop, etc. or leave trash for others to pick up) don't care. I moved into a community that was largely people older than 55 years and everyone was neighbor courteous. As younger people move in, it has become a far less pleasant neighborhood.

I love Providence and this is an incredibly beautiful house. Thank you for sharing it.

It is a tiny sliver in one of the of the photos but I love the refrigerator. I could stand there for 10 minutes and just look at everything on the doors.

I like the concept of "broken in". Clean, sparkly and new is nice but I like the comfort of a space that only comes with time and life.

Might be tight because the ceiling is angled as well but a murphy bed with desk would be a good way to go.

Funny, my exact thought when I saw the headline was AT's #4! These make me laugh! I also never wear anything nice, never carry a purse, wear cargo pants with a lot of pockets (and put $1 in one pocket, $5 in another, and larger bills in other pockets, of course, crumbling all of the bills first). I try to balance my good deal and the seller's as well.

Can I have the Orla Kiely bedding you are no longer using? :-)
Yes, always need more photos.

Gotta have the top sheet. Sorry. Making the bed is really not that hard and the top sheet does not affect the time.

-The Ikea FULLEN cabinet is for wall hung sinks but not pedestal sinks, by the way. The opening at the top for plumbing is the only one.
-The UK sells a good number of cabinets for pedestal sinks. I have found one in dark wood at home depot but that is it here. (SinkWrap 25 in. W x 20 in. D Vanity Cabinet Only for Pedestal Sinks in Espresso). I want one in white!

The old adage stands - If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. And that is especially important when commenting here/behind anonymity. I have disliked many of the homes/spaces but surprisingly could almost always find something nice that I liked if I felt the need to comment. Otherwise, there is no need to comment.

Pads definitely. Otherwise, I have done well with hard top cork bottomed placements I have gotten from Target and Pottery Barn.

If you have to watch a commercial, much better with a bit of humor. Great ads.
