Wide plank flooring, Fireplaces and all around Colonial Perfection

I guess I’m addicted to huge hearths this fall! I can’t stop and won’t stop when it comes to these moody, cozy areas. Many modern-update sins can be forgiven by their presence. Not that it’s needed here- it’s Colonial perfection with incredible wide plank flooring, several fireplaces, super wide window and door casings. All of our favorites.

The raised paneling, mantel and accents in the living room are also painted the MOST wonderful and period-perfect green shade that I wish I knew the *exact* name for- Raleigh Green? Paris Green? There’s something about Colonial raised paneling painted a punchy color that just embodies everything wonderful about an old house: utterly traditional and completely unique at the same time. That’s the sweet spot. Check this one out!
