Une belle maison

A few weeks ago, I was finally able to walk through a house I have admired for many years since it was built near my neighboorhood several years ago. I was not surprised to see that the interior is just as beautiful, if not more than the exterior.

I loved the ironwork, the lead-glass windows, the steeped roof, and the tiniest architectural details throughout the house. I swooned over the gorgeous furniture, Old-World draperies and upholstery, and the way the elements actually look antique, and not fake-wannabe antique. It has a certain charm to it that gave me chills as soon as I walked in the front doors.
What does your dreamhome look like?

  1. this is totally amazing.....
    thanks for your sweet comment today
    i am so glad to have found your blog

  2. Old world charm without the trappings of owning an older home. I've seen craftsman style being built in this fashion and I love this concept. Beautiful home; thanks so much for sharing it's rooms. And for stopping by my blog. I love your profile picture, by the way. :)

  3. Wow. The kitchen! Those cabinets! The space! Wonderful.

  5. Oh wow! Not my ultimate dream home but it is certainly in the top 10 list! I don't think I could really pick just 1 dream home. I daydream about several lol. You know, one in Italy, one in Hawaii, one in Chile. What a life that would be!
