Austin Texas Residence

The restoration of an 1899 Queen Anne design, with columns and double gallery added ca. 1910 to update the house in the Colonial Revival style with sweeping front and side porches up and downstairs, and a new carriage house apartment. All the rooms and ceilings are wallpapered, original oak trim is stained, restoration of original light fixtures and replacement of missing ones, short, sheer curtains and roller shades at the windows. The project included a small kitchen addition and master bath, and the attic was converted to a guest bedroom and bath.

Thank you, it's original to the house and has been restored; it's a c. 1890 fixture.

I don't know the story on that centerpiece, I think it's wonderful too. Doesn't it look like, with a little creativity, it'd be fairly easy to recreate?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Deck Your Table With Easy Centerpieces
Feathers, anyone? This woodsy centerpiece got me thinking of fall and of leaves' turning colors. As the seasons change, so do our options for centerpieces. These warm-tone feathers arranged artfully in a decorative tin work great for a fall table design.
Woodwork and built-ins. Wherever possible, preserving fine original woodwork is worth the effort. Wood is becoming more and more expensive, and the level of craftsmanship in older homes is much higher than what you typically find in a new construction. This may include floors, trim, molding, fireplace mantels, bookcases, china cabinets, staircases and more. If you must replace some flooring, try to have the new floors stained and matched to the old for a seamless transition.Light fixtures. The light fixtures shown here were original to the house, circa 1890. Light fixtures of that age will not be usable as they are, but they can be professionally restored and rewired to work with modern electrical systems. If you want to maintain a period look, and you have access to your home's original fixtures, it could be worth having them restored.
