Today I'm sharing miscellaneous pictures. This is a shot of the foyer. I really like real hardwood flooring. I love the feel, texture and color of wood. It is very comfortable under foot no matter what the weather.
Fall Foyer Post Simple
I thought you might want to see a little larger view of the mirror. This one from a Fall post. I will show full view one day when I get the foyer decorated the way I would like it to be. It is very small but should say something about the home when all enter. This will take some thought but I'll be back later with this one.
This lamp which is very narrow fits the foyer table very nicely.
The wood flooring looks and holds up really well but it does take some care. Water and dirt are enemies to real wood. I love the look but realize that they also need some covering especially in high traffic areas. This foyer is definitely a high traffic area.
Proper Care of Hardwood Flooring
Use a dust mop to gently remove the dirt from the flooring and use a soft damp mop to clean. I only use water to clean them and have for ten years. Never clean with harsh chemicals nor a lot of water that would shorten the life of your flooring.
The rug above is many years old but has been a great one. The color is a sage green and still is like grass beneath the feet as far as comfort and durability. It cleans well and wears well. It is not a showy piece but serves the purpose with beauty and quiet grace.
The color of our flooring is called "Gunstock". When we were looking this one stood out first in color and then the name sealed it. Chuck is a retired policeman and still working as a security officer so needless to say we have plenty of 'gun stock' in this household.
This picture is called " The Pink of Condition" and I've had it for many years as well. I love the hunt pictures. I apologize for the poor photo taken by me with glare and streaks.
I thought I'd share a few shots into the downstairs full guest bath. It isn't huge but flows well. I pretty much didn't think a full bath was needed downstairs but have come to love it for convenience. I really like the white waffle weave on the shower curtain and the spa towels. I know my girls say my favorite color is white and that may be true.
This botanical print was given to me by a good friend
A shot of the vanity (no that isn't a stain below faucet it is a shadow). I like the mirror so much so that I put it in two baths in the house.
Aren't these birds adorable? I think so and the homemade soap was given to me by a blogger friend.
This is just a short little post of old photos. I am adding new little touches to the foyer and bath. I'll update later.
Have a great week!
