View from second parlor room into my first parlor room
View from second parlor room into my shabby chic dining room. The room can be divided by the pocket doors that you see peeking out from the archway.
I love grouping together my milk glass collection.
These updated photos of my first parlor room where taken by Neil Grabowsky of Through The Lens (TTL) Studios.
The view from my first parlor room looks into my second parlor room and continues on into my dining room.
This is the original tin ceiling that I had painted a high gloss silver. The light fixture came from a historic supply store.
I have two full bathrooms in my Victorian home. One on each floor. These photos were taken by Photographer Neil Grabowsky of Through The Lens Studios based out of Montclair New Jersey.
This is the bathroom on my first floor and the one that I use every day since my bedroom is on the first floor. This room was a bedroom before I turned it into a bathroom. The wall and floor tiles are from Lowes Home Improvement Center. I purchased the claw foot tub from an antique furniture thrift shop in Ravena. There is no shower hook up yet in this bathroom. I am in no hurry since I am a daily tub bath bather. The wall sconce is from Home Depot. The ceilings in both of my bathrooms are very high.
I love lighting candles in the bathrooms. This candle holder was given to me by my friend Donna Thomas, owner of Vintage Chic Furniture.
Wreath on bathroom door.
This is the bathroom on my second floor. It was already a bathroom when I bought the house but I totally redesigned the layout to match the bathroom on the first floor. As you can see this bathroom has the shower hook up. With my ceilings being very high I had to buy a long chain to have it suspended low enough. Wall and floor tiles are from Lowes Home Improvement Center. The tub also came from the antique furniture thrift store in Ravena.
I still have to work on the door trim in my upstairs bathroom. I also want to change the overhead light fixture.
The bathroom sink is very old and was originally in a dentist’s office. I purchased it from a historic supply warehouse store in Hudson New York.
Oh my!!! I love pretty vignettes throughout the home.
Teacup candles add such loveliness. These are very feminine and elegant.
This is a fabulous way to use a vintage food scale.
This wreath is made from pages of a book.
Bunch of roses.
I have floral arrangements like this throughout my home.
I love milk glass displayed grouped together
A great way to use a ladder.
Love the framed fabric on the wall.
I am a big fan of open kitchen shelves. To me it brings a warm, cozy feel to a kitchen. It can also be very inviting and make you and everyone else love being in the kitchen.
I love the blueware on the first two shelves and then the lighter colored items up on top of this open kitchen shelf. It is not only pretty, but also adds focal point interest.
The metal shelves against the backdrop of white prevents the shelves from looking cold. This is beautiful.
Nice open space.
In my own kitchen I have rice, quinoa, beans, sugar, flour and other dry goods in jars on open shelving on both sides of my stove.
Oh my! This kitchen is so elegant.
I want to quickly add that open shelving is also a heck of a lot CHEAPER than custom-made cabinets.
I hope that I have inspired you to consider open shelving for your kitchen renovation.
