The last picture has been hung, and we are ready for a busy summer of welcoming guests. We have a refreshed Dinning Room with a new Pottery Barn rug Adeline . Old carpeting removed from the hallway, stairs and foyer area and replaced with carpet from Carpets Plus, Manitowoc. Hardwood floors refinished by Joe Hauser, Simply Hardwood, Manitowoc. The large rug in the foyer (which I love and was my inspiration for the whole redecorating) is Pottery Barn rug Cecil. The fireplace furniture is from Ashley Furniture – Wilkins-Canyon. The paint and wallpaper is from Sherwin Williams . The wallpaper border in the living room is Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpapers – Natural Arcadia. The living room couch and love seat is Broyhill from Bitter Neumann, Manitowoc.
My other inspiration piece is a print of the Christmas Tree Ship – the Rouse Simmons entitles “Yuletide Cargo” by maritime artist Eric Forsberg. I love it, Thank You Eric! A piece of Two Rivers History lives on. The Rouse Simmons was transporting christmas trees from Upper Michigan to Chicago. They were caught in a bad storm and sank off of the shores of Two Rivers in Lake Michigan on November 23, 1912.
You are welcome to come and see for yourself the newly redecorated Red Forest Bed . We love working with our old house and transforming it to show it’s true beauty of select woods and stained glass. Hope to see you soon!
