Our home here in Connecticut is a Victorian house and was built in 1900. There are beautiful features that come with a house of this age, all of which make for an interesting space to decorate.
Here’s the living room before
The house needed plenty of renovations throughout, but structure wise it was in great condition. The living space was carpeted and the walls needed new paint.
The feature I love the most about this house are the windows. Large sash windows bring floods of light in and the structure around frames them perfectly. Hidden beneath the carpet in the living room and dining room was found to be pine hardwood flooring, which has now been restored through sanding and staining. The walls were painted in the shade named “Sparrow” from Behr, and the trim in white. The window blinds are purchased at Home Depot and they custom cut them to size.
All renovations were carried out by my husband’s real estate company Trusted Properties. Then the interior decoration we worked together on. There’s ChakaKhan (our cat) sitting pretty underneath the coffee table!
I am excited to announce that Apartment Therapy featured our before and after photos!
