This home was originally posted on Apartment Therapy (read the post here), but I felt like I had to share it here with you. For those of you who appreciate historical homes (with their unique simplicity and extraordinary detail) you will love this.
This cottage offers 1660 square feet of living space (and that includes the porch!), glossy white painted bedroom floors, trim and cabinetry painted in shades of charcoal grey, and charming wallpaper. Don't you feel like this house packs a punch? The owners (Pete & Sandy) have lived there for 36 years and recently completed a two year renovation. Their super simple vintage-inspired style comes through so clearly. Each space gives you room to breathe. I already feel more relaxed.
I feel like everything in an older home is "better." The trim and mouldings are better, the floors are better (did you see the 10 inch floor boards?!?!), the doors are better. And, don't EVEN get me started on the hardware.
