Front Entry Chandelier.

The chandeliers in our front entry and our dining room came with the home upon purchase. We do not know if they were the first and only chandeliers in the home, but based upon the cloth wiring, they certainly date to the same time period of our 1916 home. Due to the aforementioned cloth wiring,… Continue reading Front Entry Chandelier.

A Handy Pantry.

I love so many aspects of our home, and the new pantry is at the top of the list. I wanted a walk in pantry to house not only all of our daily dry goods, but also our appliances, baking needs, canned foods, extra condiments, plastic baggies, coolers, and paper towels. I am delighted with… Continue reading A Handy Pantry.

I love the physical presence of an actual book; not just while reading the book, but also when I run across it sitting upon my shelf years later, perhaps picking it back up for another read, or just remembering the treasures hidden within the bound pages. For me, my library will be… Continue reading The Library.

Kitchen Cabinet Hutch.

I am not sure how I came upon the idea of a glass front kitchen hutch, probably during one of my lovely evening strolls down the streets of Pinterest. Anyways, I am delighted with the end result! This piece looks as though it is free standing, but it is actually a permanently installed feature of… Continue reading Kitchen Cabinet Hutch.

Kitchen Transom Window.

I still owe y’all a follow up post regarding the details of the front fireplace, but I couldn’t wait to share our newly installed kitchen transom window. We had this transom window hand crafted by a local artisan, Denise Feeney of Stained Glass Unlimited, and she did a stunning job! This new window perfectly matches the… Continue reading Kitchen Transom Window.
