Century Old Living Room
It looks formal but oh the history of activities does my living room hide from view. The first owner of this middle European style home was waked in this same room. The second owner built a boat in this room and was required to remove the large windows not shown in this photo in order to remove the boat from the premises. My teens used to play poker in the room pretending they were Edwardian gentlemen. I, of course, used it as a setting for countless more formal cocktail parties. I do love historic homes for I am certain that there are endless memories floating in the atmosphere that allow me to believe that I’m one among many, and therefore never really alone. Its playfulness in design also serves as a muse.
