Over the weekend I attended a local Holiday Home Tour. It included A house that I have drooled over for a while. In fact, I swore if that house every went up for sale I would buy it. It was built in 1915 and is all kinds of fabulous. I even wrote about it here. But alas, when it did go up for sale, my husband objected, firmly, to buying a house that had original 1915 wiring and plumbing and windows--never mind the original fir trim, wrap around porches, sleeping porches, multiple wood burning fireplaces, history and charm and general fabulousness of the place.
The new owner, though in mid renovation, decided to be part of the holiday tour and cleared the dust long enough for a few local interior decorators to do up the place.
One of those lucky ladies was the owner of Camas Antiques, JoAnn Taylor. I offered to help her. . . she nearly accepted.
But as a consolation, she did include several of our pillows in the decor of the master bedroom.
I have to say, I was a little bit green with envy while walking around the house (which distracted me from taking many pictures--and the ones I took don't do the place justice. It felt so big and spacious and. . . lovely). I would LOVE to be in her shoes right now.
(Those french doors lead to large glassed in sleeping porch!)
And even though I would never decorate the bedrooms in Tiffany blue and vibrant orange, I am excited that she is going to have an open house in the spring when all the work is done.
You can bet I will be the first in line.
In the meantime, our cute little twin bed, which used to look like this:
is currently on display in the Camas Antique front window display.
And it couldn't look any cuter!
I am tempted to buy it back myself!
