house tour tuesday: the big yellow (part 2)

alrighty, are you ready to see the inside of this beaut?

IMG_3068
come on in. (and in case you missed  part 1, here it is.)

IMG_2959

i have admired this house for as long as i can remember.

IMG_2916

but the first time i saw the inside (in its past life as a rental), i was quite disappointed.

IMG_2938

it had eighties contemporary cabinets, with a ton of stainless steel and the largest wolf range you ever did see. (i wish i would have taken before pics!)

IMG_2920

now, it’s back to its roots.

IMG_2930

it has gorgeous custom cabinets,

IMG_2923

with the most amazing vintage inspired pulls.

IMG_2932

and the cutest refurbished old stove.

IMG_2934

the backsplash is honeycomb carerra marble, which goes beautifully with the carerra marble countertops.

and that sink! (someday i shall have a Shaw)

IMG_2929

no detail was left untouched.

IMG_2941

even the outlet covers are swoon worthy.

and wait till you see the dining room.

IMG_2936

fancy, huh?! look at that chandelier.

IMG_2943

the house actually came with a beautiful chandelier, but the scale was a little small. so, my neighbor found a larger version of the old one and re-hung the pervious chandelier upstairs in one of the bedrooms.

IMG_2946

it is so elegant, and casts the most beautiful sparkle across the house.

IMG_2948

the fireplace was also restored using carerra marble.

IMG_2951

the living room is right off of the dining room.

IMG_2955

it has the most amazing chair (or at least i think so, but i kinda love furniture).

IMG_2966

look at the fabric!

IMG_2970

it’s a crochet pattern on top of a linen fabric.

IMG_2969

i’ve never seen anything like it. i can’t even imagine how long it must have taken the person who made that fabric. it’s a true work of art and it goes great with the other textiles in the room.

IMG_2995

which my neighbor made! yup, the pillows and the drapes were all done by her. (that’s pretty impressive, if you ask me.)

IMG_2972

she has a great eye for detail and design. she found this beautiful armoire to house the tv (it’s in the bottom cabinets) at a local antique store in the circle. i wish i could remember the details she told me about it, but it’s old. really, really old. and from Europe.

ya, know what else is old in this house?

IMG_2981

the floors. the original floors were in pretty bad shape, so the homeowners had them replaced with these old barn wood planks. they are stunning in person!

IMG_2979

so is the collection of law books in the office next to the living room. (i bet you can guess what the man of the house does for a living?) 😉

IMG_2961

next week, i’ll take you upstairs and show you the rest of this historic gem. (since i took 5,543,339 pictures and i figured this would be the worlds longest post if i kept on going!)

thanks for stopping by!
