This is a beautiful space. I especially love the wood/metal tables. Were they also made by your dad?

Although I have followed the other Renovation Diaries with great interest, this is the one that really resonates for me.

I agree with many of the above comments that the simple elegance of this space is breathtaking. It is rare indeed for me to see an aesthetic that matches my own in a house tour. Bravo!

I also have a mundane question. Can you share where the simple top-down window shades were purchased?
