In the living room, in particular, there are a large number of decorating changes I'd like to make, but my budget does not allow many of them for the moment. I could go into them in detail, but probably would only sound defensive. I'll get there soon enough, probably laugh.gif
In the kitchen, the china hutch is original. All other cabinets, appliances, and the floor are new.

great pics douggie. it looks even nicer than i remember it. having been there, i can truly say that douglas has a lovely, warm and inviting house.

i think my favorite part is the wraparound balcony that overlooks the entire living and dinning room area.

Great looking kitchen. I really like the mizuya cabinet. Have you done any other recent renovations in your house?

Thanks to all for the kind words. To answer the question about renovation, yes, we did a complete renovation of the home. I think I had posted some stuff earlier in this thread about it; I know I did somewhere, but the pics may no longer be active as I keep moving from photo sharing site to photo sharing site.

Anyways, the one pic of the two story "salon" (I want to say "great room" but I only recently was chided for saying that because I guess it's a word that came into use only during the McMansion era) shows the only room that remained pretty much untouched from the original. We refinished the floors, cleaned everything up, put in new lighting and electrical, but the room looks pretty much just like it always has.

The kitchen is one of the areas of major work. Where you see the beam running above is actually where a wall was - and on "this" side of that wall were butler's stairs leading to the second floor, and where the camera is placed is roughly where a bathroom was. The bathroom, stairs, and closets were all torn out to expand the kitchen and connect it in an open plan to a den (with an original fireplace) that sits behind where the camera is.

Elsewhere in the house, we sacrificed a bedroom upstairs to create a walk-in closet and master bathroom for a master suite, expanded another bedroom, expanded a library, all new plumbing, electrical, mechanical, lighting throughout, and in all four new bathrooms, none sitting geographically exactly where one did before. It was a lot of work, but definitely a lot of fun.

Sounds great. I hope your home brings you and your family many years of enjoyment.
