in Sonoma, California
This precious black and white victorian is full of quirky victorian details
with a modern sensibility.
Huge clock...taxidermy peacock on a stick.
The peacock is gorgeous...but I could not live with any taxidermy.
I love how big the clock is. It came from a french train depot.
We have some that exact shape at Pier 1.
They'd need to be recovered to look like these, however.
Sarah...the mistress of the home had the walls spray painted by an artist with
washes of creamy hued paint.
I like the variation in the color on the walls.
It slightly changes from room to room.
The 1940's stove came with the house.
She added the hood and the Heartland refrigerator.
The cabinets are painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Gray.
Isn't this an interesting kitchen? Wish I had that stove...oh yes I do.
Lovely breakfast area.
Custom cut mirrors fill an antique window creating a fabulous floor to ceiling mirror.
Above the children's bed hangs a vintage Circus poster.
