Dallas Tudor Cottage
This pretty cottage was sent to me by a reader a few weeks ago.
But my bad...I didn't get it posted fast enough...the listing has already disappeared so
I can't link to it or tell you what year it was built. (early 30's I'd guess)
But that doesn't keep it from being fun to look at.
It's got great curb appeal!
I love the way it's painted.
The contrast of the timbers, stucco, multi color brick and large flagstone all mix together nicely.
Wouldn't you love to spend a summer afternoon on this porch?
What a great outdoor room! I really like the furniture they chose.
What a big porch! French doors out to it too plus a lovely view of the neighborhood.
The living room has a nice cathedral ceiling and another little sitting room through the arch.
Look at all the arched windows in this room!
Special art tile fireplace too.
This house is decorated very nicely.
It's in warmer colors than I prefer but its pretty and very livable looking.
Arches on both sides of the room. That is unusual!
Warm inviting dining room. Unusual original chandelier in this room.
I love that big print on the wall of some sort of general.
This owner has quite a collection of transferware!
All of this is so pretty...but I'd love to paint some of this furniture...wouldn't you?
Inviting little den.
Breakfast nook with wonderful built in.
The kitchen in this house is super nice.
It's got all great finishes.
Black granite, subway tiles, bridge faucet, stainless appliances plus a little breakfast bar on one side.
I love the drawer pulls. I need these myself.
Wish the stove had a fancier hood and then it would be perfect.
This kitchen is large for a house of this age and style.
But here is what I really love in this house....the bathrooms!
How about an original peach and green one?
We'll call this bathroom - A
Bathroom B is lavender and black original tile. Wow!
And bathroom C I would guess is a new one built to look old.
I wish they'd used more tile on the walls in this one instead of beadboard but I love all else.
I think this would be the upstairs hall.
The back deck is a great spot too although it doesn't compare to that front porch!
From the back, you can see where the house has been added on to over the years.
Here is the important question which bathroom do you like best?
A, B or C?
I'm crazy for A and B leaning more towards B.
I think it would be so fun to paint these and accessorize them to play up the colored tile.
I don't think they are living up to their full potential.
I hope you all enjoy your Sunday.
Weather is absolutely gorgeous here!
If the summers were like this every year in Oklahoma everyone
would want to live here and it would be called California!
