Traditional Sunroom

Believe it or not, the sunroom at The House on High Street has been an interior work in progress. Scott and I decided to have the sunroom (and upstairs balcony) constructed prior to moving into the house. However, most of the interior decorating has accumulated over time. In case you forgot, this is what our sunroom looked like before renovation. Here is …

Faux Beams – Elegant & Rustic Kitchen

I’ve always wanted an elegant, yet rustic kitchen. I know an elegant and rustic kitchen may sound a bit like an oxymoron. But, if you remember back to my first post, My Kitchen, My Gift, I’ve always wanted a kitchen that was elegant and pretty, but also rustic and warm.

And, yours truly (Scott and I) sanded trim before touch-up paint (which should occur this week). The Countertops It took months for me to decide on the right stone …
