This is what you see when you first step inside. I took this shot from the front door. Our house is a story and a half open floor plan. The hardwood floors were installed a few years ago in place of an oak foyer floor that ran into carpet in the great room ahead and the dining room and living rooms to the right and left were carpeted and the kitchen was white linoleum. Yes, that is correct, linoleum. I was so thrilled when we replaced the flooring with this Santos mahogany on the first floor. All of a sudden the whole space seemed larger because it wasn't chopped up anymore from room to room.
My sheep and vintage books are still here.
Mirror, Staffordshire plates, and an antler trophy hang above.
This is looking back towards the front door.
I have turned an urn into an umbrella stand.
This is my latest ASCP Aubusson blue victim. This was originally a greenish white when I bought it and then I spray painted it black and now it is blue and aged.
My favorite style is French country with a gathered over time look. I hope that is what comes across.
Have a wonderful week!
