Up until maybe 10 years ago, I had no attraction to older homes. None. I had no appreciation for real - and by real I mean real hardwood floors the squeak ever so slightly, no appreciation for well-constructed bones, and no appreciation for character. I don't know what I was thinking... Well, yes I do. I wanted something fresh and new that didn't cost anything in time or money to fix up. But after being a homeowner of a newly constructed home for several years now, I dream of really thick walls, quality construction, and having that moment where I can pull up old carpet and find the most beautiful hardwood floors underneath. Perhaps one day I will have the patience and the finances to have that moment. In the meantime, I will dream via pictures. This craftsman style home is exactly something I would love to have. This is a new home that has actually been built to look old and I think the homeowners did an amazing job (I originally thought it was an updated older home!) I love the thick baseboards (why do they not make them like that- standard- anymore??) the old doors and windows, and of course the hardwood floors, which are old, too. The mix of the warm and bright paint colors make the home so inviting. Naturally the decor does, too. Just beautiful...
