Day 836: timeless design

I love this house. It just oozes timelessness, which is probably because it is filled with furniture selected for the homeowners by Albery Hadley more than 40 years ago. With painted gray floors and pale walls, it feels current.

The entry is perfect. Makes me want to buy this from High Street Market.

Love it and the painted floors! If I lived there I would have to throw down a rug or two but it looks fabulous!!

So pretty. This is what most of us should try to achieve with our own homes. Invest in the important item and buy things you love and they won't go out of style. Great post!

I LOVE this house. And, thanks for the shout out! The eagle sold (to a good home) this morning. :)

I think the bedroom is my favorite here, I really like the wall color.

I'm shocked that it was decorated 40 years ago and it still looks that good. Truly timeless!

Why what a beautiful home! That Mr. Handley is quite the talent.

Everything still looks so current. What a timeless home.

The entryway has to be my favorite!
