Classic Modern

Last year I toured this house and was amazed that so much style could be packed into such a small home. The house was built in the 1920's and does retain much of it's original character, despite it's cutting-edge styling.

To the left of the main living room you'll find the dining room.
How I wish I could be this "edited".
O.K., no, not really. I like all of my stuff.

How do you like the chandelier? I know most of you have seen light fixtures similar to this one, but as I recall, this is real wax that has been electrified.

Now, look at the kitchen below, who would have thought of using that sconce in the kitchen?
I think it's the touches like that which truly set this interior apart.

Also, notice the metal windows with the great muttons and mullions in the "x" pattern.
Here's another thing: this house is DECORATED for Christmas!
Imagine the restraint one must have!
I adore the wreaths and paperwhites being forced.

The master bedroom above.
Quiet and simple--words I would use to describe the entire house.

I don't think there is one of us who wouldn't love to soak in this tub.
Isn't the marble wonderful?

By the way, the home is for sale. Any takers?
