We were able to explore the rooms, closets and stairways of an old home last week. There were pleasant surprises around each corner, and a few interesting discoveries.
Although this home is being restored and turned into the town’s commerce offices, it was once the mayor’s residence. The design and layout of the house would be perfect for practicing hospitality.
In the entryway there sat vintage chairs with great style and fabric design.
Beside and above the mid-way landing of the stairs was a sitting area. It seems like the perfect place for portraits, and made me think of Monica’s bridal shoot.
When opening a closet door, one doesn’t always expect to find light brightly shining in through windows. This miniature closet, with hooks lined at the top of the walls, looked as though it was the perfect hiding place for wee ones back in the days when it housed a family.
Inside the closet.
At the top of these stairs was found the third floor—one large room, lined with torn wallpaper, and brightly lit by the sun shining through each of the grandly-shaped windows.
In the same room there was a total of three different wallpapers. The prints were of fox hunters on the move, Indians riding horses, and rabbits staring back at you. A very interesting combination.
And that is a close to the mini-tour of the mayor’s old home – thank you for exploring with me…
I’m looking forward to the opportunity to photograph the next vintage home!
