So, what is your favorite detail? I love so much of this house. There are so many little details that would just make life in this house so much more enjoyable. For example, the tile in the laundry room. That would perk me right up when I was doing laundry. Pink bathroom. Perfect. I also adore the dining room and three season porch. Share your favorite details in the comments!

    The divider is pretty grand. Is that wrought iron?

    This is so pretty. The dining room is fantastic(that wallpaper!) and so is the laundry room-the build-in desk is too cute.

    So many fantastic features! Love that the most recent owners embraced MCM and not only didn’t destroy the home with inappropriate remodelling, but beautifully enhanced it with such lovely furnishings.
