Victorian Resurrection

A custom bookcase for cookbook collection was built from recycled wood. Maker was found at a local home show in Portland. All furniture pieces were made or found and selected/designed maximizing height to accentuate tall ceilings. The vestibule in the background shows tiny space added by new nib walls as entry way to existing bathroom. Designer hand-painted stripes on the wall when an appropriate wallpaper could not be located. Photo by Lincoln Barbour

Hello Claudette, and thank you! The fixtures were a Craigslist find--they came out of a Whole Foods market. You can get a similar look from Schoolhouse Electric.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Set a beautiful table for dinner every night. Why save your best for special occasions and company? Set your table every night with a tablecloth, real napkins and pretty dishes. Light candles, put soft music on in the background and dim the overhead lights. Savor your meal and linger at the table — if you don’t want to indulge in a sweet dessert every night, you could serve ripe fruit or just coffee and tea.
