When we started working on #theblondevic there wasn’t a whole lot left, but we felt inspired by the structure of the house and what we knew it could be. We could just feel it from the first time we saw it - the tall ceilings, hints of character under the painted floors, and this one piece of woodwork in the parlor that was in amazing shape despite the rest of the house being in shambles. We decided to leave the door trim & doors unpainted throughout the first floor to tie in with the existing parlor woodwork, and love how they pick up on the directional detail in the floors. Most of this house is brand new, but keeping original details like this woodwork, these slightly crooked pocket doors and the original oak floors make it still feel old. And we like that. A lot.
