Victorian Splendor

Originally designed by J. Merrill Brown in 1887, this Queen Anne style home sits proudly in Cambridge's Avon Hill Historic District. Past was blended with present in the restoration of this property to its original 19th century elegance. The design satisfied historical requirements with its attention to authentic detailsand materials; it also satisfied the wishes of the family who has been connected to the house through several generations.

Thanks for your question spotty06! The trim is a custom stain to match the existing trim in the house.

The wallpaper accent is lovely. What is it, please? - There are several details that keep me coming back to this room for ideas. Thank you! We are in a 103-year-old farmhouse with stained woodwork, too. Your design mixes the stained and painted finishes nicely!

Thanks for your question! This faucet is from Kohler. The model is Vinnata secondary kitchen sink faucet with a brushed nickel finish.;jsessionid=869102D1463E99E3FC1A37C02553852E.kohler-prod2-ecom1?_requestid=684702

Love this faucet. When I saw it, I immediately spotted it to be Vinnata by Kohler. I too want the smaller secondary faucet size.
