Benjamin Moore's aura Buttered Yam on the walls. Glass topped table, end table, and buffet from the neighbors who were downsizing. Hutch with burl from the local thrift store. Sunflower platter from my mother-in-law's trip to Italy. Bird print from a local antique store. Thermometers/barometers under and over the thermostat were my grandfather's. Wall quilt by my mom. I try to weave together new, old, sentimental and natural to achieve a thematic decor that fits our needs and is visually pleasing at the same time. Someday we'll tear out the carpet and put down (reclaimed?) hardwood. We've made a few small changes to the room since I took these pictures, but it's still substantially the same.
