Take a look at this grand home on this majestic site....it belongs to the daughter and son in law of the illustrator in the previous post. It was built by the owner and designed by his wife's brother.
I will borrow the words in the tour brochure....."the interior, warm and welcoming, combines antiques and eclectic contemporary pieces"....
The dining room features a huge antler chandelier and windows that look out over the barn and outbuildings and beautiful countryside.
This spectacular fireplace in the living room was created by the owner...
This home was decorated beautifully and the outside had many interesting features.....please look at Carole's posts later on in the week as it was at this point that my camera battery died and my memory card was full!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
