Tudor Living \\ before & after

This dining room, originally the other half of the jack and jill bedrooms, we opened it up to create a dining room and added french doors that open up to a patio, gardenias and a wall of jasmine! Opening this wall up was one of the best decisions, the house feels so much more open and the evening light comes through those doors, plus if we kept this a bedroom, the only access to the downstairs bathroom would be through someones room which is just awkward.

we removed this off center window and added a fireplace with two salvaged windows on each side. I love how they swing open!

Every shell has a memory from our travels! I love collecting treasures that tell a story and bring me back whenever we play with them.

We added these two built in bookcases to give the house a little more character. There wasn't much when we bought the house, but we added in decorative trim and baseboards and kept the original old windows and wood floors, stained Provincial by Minwax.
