Tour the Boxy Colonial

Here’s a quick tour of the boxy colonial. Click on a room name to jump directly to the page about that room for more pictures and source lists (when one exists; work in progress!). I’ve put all the rooms on here, even the ones we’ve done nothing with yet, because I’m into realism and all that.

    • Hmm…I mentioned one time that I used to HAVE some lemon tree china (Johnson Bros, I think it was) when we lived in Boston, that I gave to a friend when we moved down here. I bought some black and gold dessert plates from Target awhile back, and we use those along with plain white dinner plates for special occasions (and Ikea stuff for every day. I also have my grandmother’s old everyday dishes, but I boxed those up for now, because it bothered me too much when kids broke them by accident). And then I’d love to have a set of mix and match blue china, but I have nowhere to put it right now, so it’s not really an active hunt. So I’m not sure? In all likelihood I talked about a quest for special china one time and since then I’ve gotten distracted….I change my mind a lot 😉

  1. Ah, another homeschooler who loves blue, lots of pictures, birds, books, and ships. We have a Civil War era Victorian in upstate NY with no end of projects. Also only 4 bedrooms…and 8 (eight!) kids.

  2. I just found your blog through Google and have spent the last hour reading through it. It’s my new favorite blog! It already has a spot on my Feedly! I absolutely love your library. The colors, comfy couch, cute dog and bookshelves that make this bibliophile drool.

  3. I covet those bookcases in the library! Great looking house, but with 4 kids, is it always so clean?? LOL

    • Thanks! No, definitely not always clean. My blogging strategy is to clean one room then take pictures of it really fast before someone comes along to mess it up 😉

  4. Lovely, lovely. The only pic I don’t understand is the foyer. It looks like one color ended and then you went to another color. MMmmmmm not so much. I want your library exactly as you have done it. Just beautiful

    • Thank you! Yes, the foyer paint is not intentional; the yellow is the color that was EVERYWHERE in the house when we first moved in, and we’re still trying to get rid of the last vestiges of it….we can’t reach to paint the stairwell ourselves, so we have to decide between hiring a professional and risking death with by getting on a ladder and attempting it ourselves 🙂

  5. I was looking at some realistic tips for removing a large bathroom mirror (just like the one you took down in the master (?) bath), and I want to THANK YOU for those great tips! Things that can SEEM straightforward sometimes are not, what a profound statement. lol! But like how you duct-taped it, I would NOT have thought to do that & I’m definitely doing it just like you did. Your house looks A-MAZE-ING, to say the least. There is so much love & thoughtfulness put into the kids’ rooms, what a nice family you guys are!! 💜💜

Like all human bloggers, I love comments :)
