I would also like to know where to get this chandelier (I don't see it at Ballard Designs, where the pendant lights were purchased). Can anyone tell us where to get this? thanks

The chandelier & rug are lovely & the room has a homely feel to it. As for the rifle above the fireplace, that would not be allowed in Australia. All rifles/guns have to be registered & locked in a secure gun case.

Mary Prince Photography added this to My Houzz: Loving Efforts Restore a 1787 Farmhouse
"About a hundred years ago, the owner, a debutante from Louisburg Square in Boston's Beacon Hill, was a pianist and used [this] as her summer home," Ferrini says. When the ceiling in the great room collapsed, she left it open for better acoustics to play, hence the gorgeous open-beam ceiling. The original iron cooking apparatus for hanging pots over the fire, a warming stove built into the brick and built-in cabinets for storing food and cookware have all been preserved.Needlepoint carpet: John Aga
Plaster. Thick plaster walls have a rich look that ultrasmooth drywall just can't match. Plaster walls are also typically quite insulating — better to leave them as is if possible.
