1940’s Traditional in Glendale, CA. Relatively rare to see pink tiles in kitchens so this one is a treat. Love the arched doorway. Not really sure how I feel about the blue tiles mixed in. I think this could do without that detail. I know exactly how I feel about that flooring though 🤢
Remember this one? it’s almost done! Just got a happy photo from the builder of the newly installed plaque from @preservationdurham. The house was the home of the striking Cora Wright Chambers, and we had the pleasure of pulling together a house history for Garrett Builders. After photos once it hits the market.
Wallpaper is finally up in my office and I’m obsessed! 🥀♥️🥀 @chasingpaper has tons of tempting patterns, but since my house is 💯 years old I went with the William Morris-esque “Autumn Florals.” Install was super easy- check out my stories for the behind the scenes! . . This closet was used for all my craft stuff (swipe for the before ⬅️🤦♀️), but I made @seanymike22 cut a couple shelves out and add some hooks so we can use it as an entry closet instead. But now it’s so beautiful I don’t want to put anything in there. 😭 . #peelsticklove#wallpaperwednesday#stjohnstudorremodel
1920’s Colonial in Nowata, OK. 4 original vintage bathrooms in this gem. The first is my favorite due to the bold red Tile softened by the floral wallpaper, but that yellow/blue tile combo is wonderful as well, ANNND there are TWO vintage pink tiled bathrooms! So this house has something for everyone ✨🙏🏼👏🏻
See those little windows up on the third floor? Those are Vertigo's windows, and they're old (not original, but old) single pane windows. . To replace them with historically correct windows the quote was a thousand bucks (apiece!). 😳 . That wasn't an option, but we know the street noise can be bothersome, so I was super happy to find out about the new *interior* storm windows from @larsondoors (interior was key because who's gonna climb up to that third floor on a ladder to hang outside storms?! Not I!). . We installed these Comfort SEAL windows today (and by we I mean the wonderful handyman down the street who's a fellow superhost) and IMMEDIATELY it was quieter. It's never gonna be countryside silent in there, this *is* city life after all. But the difference from the flimsy old glass and these is pretty remarkable. . They're also low E glass, which should help keep it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Now I kinda want to go around and replace all our old exterior storms in the rest of the house with these!
