Wonderful! Imagine spending the holidays in an enchanted place like this! It's like stepping back in time. The place is chock full of authenticity and character. Very well done. Thank you for this article.

We have a reproduction Solomen Richardson saltbox house in Ann Arbor MI so it was great to see Mr. Towle's real house inside and outside. Thank you for a great article!

"Runner"-- I like that very accurate term. My mom is a runner, with a house packed full of crap, yet she is always going from one place to the next, never at home. I've worked hard to make my home my oasis, while she just sleeps each night in a house. She doesn't seem to grasp that I simply love being in my home and how comfortable and soothing my home is to me.

I've never thought of it in the way of a word just as an observation and now the word "runner" will come to mind when I see the home my friend had renovated. It is the most beautiful renovation fit for Houzz except for all the clutter and non sensical placement of things. I have to concentrate on the beauty underneath rather than what is in my face when I go to visit her. I love being in my home it's a nest that comforts and soothes me.

we've had cork tiles down for 15 years. is it scratched? i honestly don't know; this flooring hides everything! there are little dents from the refrigerator which tell you where it goes if you have to pull it out. In a rental last winter with ebonized hardwood, i swept dog hair every day, but at home, I don't see it. The cork has faded, even with low E glass and about 30 days of sun a year, so i keep the rugs in the same place. If i had it to do again, I would put electric matt heating under it.

Sorry if this has been said already, as I didn't read all the comments--but we had laminate flooring in our last kitchen, and I would NEVER do that again. We spilled some water that got between the "boards", and they immediately buckled, swelled and blistered. The area around the cats' water dish was a mess. We'd been assured that this brand was really water resistant and wouldn't have that problem. For the cost, we could have installed some really nice sheet vinyl.

What delightful stories! Thank you all for sharing. It occurred to me while reading this that it is for these moments in life that we all read Houzz for ideas to adorn our spaces we call home.

Our turkey was done and resting on the kitchen counter and I had run upstairs. That's when I heard my husband calmly call out from the next room, "Is this your roast turkey in the hall?" It took a few seconds to wrap my brain around the question. Our Golden had trotted up the steps with it and was happily munching away. No one had turkey that day.
