Parade of Homes Spring Lane

There was a Parade of Homes that we walked through. Their credit card machine was down so we toured the only one we wanted to see for free. Perfect.
This painting was from the designer Robert McArthur.
The exposed brick walls , with three pendant lights, and large crown on the cupboards was done really well. I'm not sure I'm sold on painting trim the same color of the walls.
What I'm really taken with is everything they repurposed and reused in this house. It started with this bench. Love the distressed colors.
Wallpaper is so fun! Love this silverware wallpaper in the dining room.
Stained paneled ceiling, lit up by this funky steal punk light. I appreciate the unexpected.
The transoms in this house I believe we're all original and reused. The doors were weathered and superb.
Crazy about the wood and stain on this island. The large shaker panels worked well.
This art could easily be a DIY. It's subway art with names of near by streets and places. I'm not sure if there was deeper significance to the specific names, but they could easily make this custom for you.
This large tile mosaic was really neat. So we're Drewpy's shoe covers.
Exposed brick wall in the mudroom. The paint on the trim was perfect for this room.
What is better than wallpaper? Wallpaper in unexpected places. This wallpaper is on the ceiling in a bathroom and is vintage postal notes, totally adorable. And the huge crown moulding. Brilliant.
More transoms.
Brass plumbing fixtures...
This penny tile wasn't laid very well, I'm sure it's not an easy task, but I love the idea.
I want Drew to build this for me. It's a small little end table that looks like some weathered 4x4's.
Mason jar light love.
Windmill wallapaper in the laundry room. I am so crazy about grey cabinets.
This twin bed built into the nook of the room to increase size of room. I think I'm crazy about it. But don't know if it would just end up driving the sleeper crazy. The built in bookshelf is terrific.
Oh my.... The trim in this room.... The built in seat with the window above, is charming.
Track lighting in a bedroom? It works in this little nook perfectly! Love this use of space in the home.
It was such a charming home. Love seeing how people can make old things new.
