I was very surprised! Turns out, it was not at all what I expected. Most of the interiors of the homes we saw were very traditional and in keeping with the exterior of the homes. I guess I was hoping for more of a juxtaposition of modern decor in a historic home.... but anyway, it's always fun to see how others live.
Here are some examples of homes in the neighborhood.
Beautiful, right? You can totally understand why I was so eager to see what the insides look like.
Here is what I discovered.
Totally traditional, right? Here are some details.
Sorry for the bad photo, but I loved these original floors.
This was the most 'modern' kitchen I saw. Loooved the royal blue countertops on the island.
And just some misc. photos... there was also an antique fair in the park the same weekend... did I mention how much I LOVE this neighborhood??
Me, enjoying the tour!
After taking this tour and talking with the homeowners, I really understand that preserving the historical value of these homes is the homeowners' passion. So I totally respect all the hard work they put into doing just that.
I would still like to see one decked out in modern decor... maybe someday! Nonetheless, I enjoyed it!
