This is only a partial view of the
It is down one step from the dinette.
It closes off with
(which I don't have a picture of this time).
Ruth has always loved the colors of
rose and turquoise
so that is what we are working with here.
Once again, they did not have to
buy a single item to stage this room.
This beautiful piece sits just inside
the doors to the right.
The light hit that clock face full force and almost blinded me!
Ruth has her large collection of
Romantic Homes and Victoria,
plus some china, stored inside.
I guess this is the only picture I took of that room
as we were packing up.
Once the hutch was taken to auction
we re-positioned the sofa and
brought the chairs close to the fireplace.
This is that same corner now.
She already had all the oil paintings.
The one over the sofa moved from a bedroom
to this room.
To the left of the French doors sits a grand piano.
This is looking along the left wall towards
the fireplace and other corner.
The blinds in this room are copper,
as are in the rooms throughout the house,
and cast a rosy glow
when hit by the sun.
Below is the view
dead center from the dinette looking into the room.
As in the other rooms, the carpeting will most likely
be replaced and there is an allowance for that in the price.
The mantle is an antique one they added to the home
several years ago.
It's amazing what you can do with someone's things,
All this furniture will go to auction, too,
when the house sells.
Except for this chair and footstool-
a family heirloom.
So far so good, huh?
Tomorrow- I will tell you about the
elephant in the bedroom!
You'll want to see that!
