Since leaving the big city behind almost a year ago our old farmhouse has been in a pretty constant state of renovation. And the dust and noise and fumes continue on. The only room that didn’t (or doesn’t) require pretty extensive reno was the living room. With the exception of a popcorn ceiling that we replaced the original details of this room are still pretty much intact. Its original oak wainscotting was beautifully preserved. Even the old damask wallpaper was in excellent condition. When we moved in every single room in the house was coated in wallpaper, some very nice, some very very bad. All of it had to go. All but the classic raised blue. It wasn’t going anywhere. Here are a few details from the farm livin’ room.
