I like old things, pieces that have some history and life to them. And I like color. Lots of it. And prints. Nothing will make me crazy faster than white walls.
The new house has all white walls.
But these aren't bad; it feels like the previous owners, an older couple, left me a lovely blank slate to start with.
Take the kitchen. It's dated. It's probably the tiredest room in the house, but I like it. The layout is very comfortable for the way I cook. It's big enough for a table and chairs and two of my vintage freestanding cabinets, and the existing kitchen cabinets are all in really good shape. They're just dark, and make it feel gloomy.
My current kitchen, much as I adore it, looks out onto the alley and gets no direct sunlight. These photos were taken on New Years Eve in the afternoon and are still bright.
Oh, and that light fixture? Its days are numbered.
