Meet the " MARY CANIS HOUSE "
There's no point getting mad at me for saying this - because I only live there in fantasy - but I'd paint all that wood - WHITE !!! ( the door would be painted black ) I'm ducking as I type because I know a lot of you are probably outraged by that statement !
You know me - show me a radiator and I'm sold
The work and craftmanship that went into turn of the century homes just amazes me - when did it become ok to just build boxes I wonder? The 50's? The 60's ?
Because as much as we can try to recreate architectural beauty - it's still only mdf or plastic we're installing
Wallpaper gone - window treatments gone - bright - white and airy - this would be unbelievably gorgeous !
The details on the window frames !!!
I'd personally have to remove all the wall paper too - but I'm just amazed at all the original details in this home
Updated Kitchen - major bonus !
Complete with oven ?
And shelves for cookbooks !
Let's check out the upstairs
It's a LOT of house - but if this doesn't scream a B & B ( worthy of the Crowley's staying at ) I don't know what does !
Have a wonderful day everyone !
I'll be taking this beauty to the following parties !
