Oh I wish my living room or dining room looked like that. Oh, the housewarming gift ideas I’d have!
That’s the Clinton Dining Room at the Fraunces Tavern. I like the architecture, the simple decor, the incredible elegance.
I wrote about our summer visit to the Fraunces Tavern at my travel blog. I finally got around to it, five months later!! I am so bad, I know.
Anyway, from time to time I like to find photos of old houses. They are just so lovely. I was recently perusing a real estate site where they listed dozens of houses from 1890 to 1980. My, what a difference, what a horrid difference. I don’t know exactly what makes newer houses so horribly ugly and old homes so exquisitely beautiful. I don’t care if the modern home has insulation and new argon gas-filled windows and a thermal door. They are UGLY. Why can’t they make energy-efficient, beautiful houses today?
I guess I made up my mind that I will probably never own a new home– not an ugly new home, anyway. I’d rather endure drafts and be surrounded by such beauty.
