PS: to Michpc - The woodwork and paneling in the dining room are tiger cut oak and the photos do not do the grain pattern justice - I am sure you would love it even more in person! When we moved in the stain was so dark that you could not see the grain - I removed two original (gas) sconces in the buffet and saw that the original stain was quite light and showed the grain - so I stripped all that woodwork down and then simply oiled it.

Hello Mirandabee,

I am glad you like the teal chairs in the dining room - they are one of my favorite things!

The house was built in 1913 and has only been occupied by 3 owners (including ourselves) - It is possible that some of the windows have been replaced (and likely) but the large picture window in the front looks to be original as up close you can see the movement of the glass - same for the large dining room window. The rooms ARE quite large but the photograghy does make them appear even larger than they are. That was one of the selling points for us, that the rooms were unordinarily large for the period of the house (master bath too!). I hope that answers your questions regarding age of the house.

I wanted to thank you all for your comments. I hope that you enjoyed the tour through my house. My design philosophy is that the interior of a house should reflect the personalities within, that is what makes it a home. My house definitely reflects the exuberance for life that our family has.

Thank you for allowing a piece of my life to enter yours!
