Character

August 23, 2011

There are so many tiny details that add charm and character to our home.
Along with the location and layout of the house, these details are what sold us on it.
Here are just a few.
The coalburning fireplace.

The wood, everywhere.

Antique and stained glass windows.

The old lights.

This thingy.

And the staircase.

Are there pieces of your house that you adore?
Are there little bits of character that make your house so charming?
I hope so!

Even though we will eventually convert the fireplace to gas, we are planning on keeping the original wood mantel (not shown) and adding white tile around it. We want to keep the character of our house, while bringing in modern, vintage, and rustic elements of design. Progress on the house has been extremely slow and frankly, pretty discouraging. We’ve had serious issues with our ceiling paint, a leaky second floor bathroom, and other minor problems which have delayed us from painting the walls in the dining room, living room, and den for about two weeks. BUT, last night Zach and I knocked out the painting on two ceilings and hope to start the major wall painting soon!!! If you want to see our progress, feel free to follow me on Twitter as I gripe, celebrate, and share these awesome memories we are creating!

Have a wonderful night!

    How cool! Love the pics and all the character your house has. I know you’ve hit some setbacks but this place is going to look amazing when it’s done, I just know it! 🙂
