I'm nuts about the fabulous dining table and chairs! And the blue glass cherry...

The house is stunning - the decor not so much. I find myself agreeing with Kendrah here. I too love eclecticism done well, but this feels a bit pretentious to be honest, not to mention unauthentic. Homes that feel the need to name the designer of the furniture generally do that to me though. If you love the authenticity and simplicity of the saltbox, then why oh why do you have to turn it into something it is not? The most jarring item to me is the dining setting, which I'm sure would be lovely - in the right setting - just not here. Like others, I adore the kitchen, which is so far un-ruined - I shudder to think in how many ways they can destroy the personality it already has in spades..

What a great job of making it relevant for modern life while celebrating the history and beauty of the old house!
