Open House Sunday

Crown Heights in OKC
built 1938
This little cottage is a trans-architecture home.
Originally built as a tudor revival, it has been altered to appear colonial.
White gable dormer added to the roof, black shutters added to the windows and the side porch has been 
filled in with white siding.
It's an attractive house, isn't it? It's just that it's a colonial that really isn't a colonial.
Inside it has the typical OKC tudor revival layout complete with arched doorways.
I normally don't care for a big sectional in these homes...but I like what they've done in this room.
The gray sectional with the tan walls and the mix of pillows on the sofa make for a very cozy room yet modern. 
Fireplace has colonial tendencies. I love that black and white checked chair in the corner. 
This room would benefit from drapes but then so would my living room.
The transition from this room to the dining room is very nice.
Love the feel of this room. It's cozy but glamorous at the same time.
I really like the big mirrored sideboard.
Nice sized kitchen for a small house. 
They took the doors off the cabinets. I always like that.
Love that green china cabinet seen in the room just past the arched doorway.
Well, here the colonial features show up again in the corner cabinets.
Maybe this house was suppose to have a colonial cottage feel from the very beginning after all.
This room was once the open air porch. Now it's a sitting room off the bedroom.
An old window became a pass through bookshelf.
Almost a tropical feel in the master with the light green walls and white breezy curtains.
  Of course I love this bath with it's original tile!
So glad they didn't change that but it doesn't go with the colonial vibe of the house.
I can totally see this house having a black and white bath, can't you?

Sweet little house, although I'd have to do something immediately to that bathroom. I agree with your idea for it. It's always fun to view homes with you.

Whatever the style, it's a nice little house. I'd definitely keep the bathroom tile because it's part of the charm of houses from that era.
Enjoyed the tour.

I really like this house
and I think I do because it looks like a HOME.
I love all the clutter on the refrigerator and the different choices of furniture, while some might not be what I'd pick, I like it a lot.
Yep, looks like a home.
Nice.

PS...I'd make that bathroom just fun!
Maybe use kid bath stuff, like rubber ducks and just go with the colors rather than fight them.

Pretty home...I love that bathroom too!

Love the house. Hate to see the TV in its "prominent" spot.

I looked again. That IS a TV above the mantel, isn't it?

Cindi - Yes, it would be fun to just go with the fun color of the tile...a rubber ducky theme would be grand!

Brenda -
Yes, that is a hideous flat screen above the fireplace. I absolutely hate that! But I thought I'd try to ignore it.

I hate that tv about the fireplace too and don't let me start on all of those cords.
I like this house but it does seem a bit schizophrenic. I love that the grey couch. It is a great mix of traditional and modern.
Thanks for this weekly post.
