Home in Nichols Hills of Oklahoma City
and a little shake, rattle and roll...
This is a departure from the older homes I usually show but this is a very good neighborhood in
Oklahoma City and a lovely home. And because it was built in 1950 it qualifies as vintage.
But before I show this house I have to tell you about what happened here this weekend.
I worked an estate sale this weekend with a friend. This morning everyone came into the sale asking us
if we'd felt the earthquake the night before.
These were people that didn't live far from us...a few neighborhoods over.
No...we didn't feel anything. They said it was a 4.7.
So last night about 10:30, I'm lying on the den sofa with all the dogs and all of a sudden the whole house
starts to rumble. Everything is shaking everywhere. It went on for at least a minute and at the very end
of it I swear I felt my whole floor shift and come back.
It made the dogs all start barking. These dogs who are not afraid of any storm.
When we had the big hail storm last year with golf ball sized hail. The dogs all stood at the patio doors watching it.
But this scared them. It scared me too. It scared all of us. All my friends felt it. Friends that live on the
north side of the city. I just read online that it registered a 5.6!
The strongest ever in Oklahoma history.
Read about it here.
I've never experienced one before and neither have any of my friends.
Wow! I have a new appreciation for all of you that live in California.
We all said that we can handle tornadoes but earthquakes scare us to death.
But in actuality it didn't do any damage and a tornado certainly would have.
Now on to the house.
This house has a very interesting mix of furnishings and accessories which is why I am showing it.
I love that red framed mirror and the black demi lune console shown above.
Then there is the silver tuft with the modern white table.
A very warm cozy room. I like the mantel painted grey and the antique buffet.
Another living area. I like the big chunky mantel on the stacked stone fireplace.
from another angle
I love the wall nook and the table that sets into it.
Of course I love this bath.
Very cute little girl's room.
Baby's room is very sweet too. Oh...why didn't I have a chandelier when I was a baby?
I remember wishing for one starting at about age five.
Love those lamps and their shades on the dresser.
Master bath is nice but I don't care for that wallpaper.
Outback....love the black and white cushions on this set.
Yes, I could lounge here. Couldn't you?
