I watch HGTV because I am am fascinated by what those designers do on TV. They have a page called "rate my space" so people can post photos of their space and get it rated by viewers. Everything on HGTV is modern so I thought maybe an old house would draw some interest. Well!!! They hated it. My livingroom was considered dark (its winter and dreary people) and dated and cluttered. So, I am back to my roots-old house fans. I love my antiques, I collect lamps and lustres because they are house jewlery to me. I enjoy my home and love finding treasures for it. All of my decor has a story, it was not just a purchase at a furniture store, and I love period pieces. We have worked on our 1920 foursquare for many years, but have maintained the character of the home. The woodwork has never been painted, the hardwood floors are beautiful, the french doors, the glass doorknobs, the many windows, the separate rooms (not open floor plan). So thanks for listening old house people.
