Sneak Peak New Home -Part 1

Well, its been a very busy Fall.
We bought a house while flying  by the seat of  our pants! We new we would eventually downsize a bit,  but weren't sure when.  However, there was this house I have admired for the past few years and when it went for sale we thought, why not?  I will truly miss my old historic home because I raised my family there.  Now the girls are all starting to leave the nest and this old home is just not the same with out them around. 

 So change is a good thing! Or at least that is what I have been telling myself!
We had the walk through the other day and I snuck a few photos while the rooms are empty.  My first task now in the new home is lighting for a few rooms and maybe paint and rugs to start. After cleaning out my present home I now know that I will take my time not to clutter the new home  but to rather fill the home with things I love. 
 I will post the journey while I make a new home our home. 

The lovely chandelier is not staying, it is gorgeous but I just purchased a glass moroccan beauty from a favorite store in Lambertville - ZINC HOME.
I cannot wait to hang it!

I have to add two chairs, cocktail table and accessories but this is a good starting point.

Stay tuned for Part 2!


  1. It looks like it belongs in my village in the south of France. I imagine you'll find a way to use the chandelier elsewhere?

  2. Oh, Karolyn it's a stunning home! So excited for you and I can't wait for Part 2 of the tour!

  3. Karolyn the ultimate possibly of all things beautiful await in your talented creative hands. Did you know Zinc is my favorite store? Well OK equal to Material Culture in Philadelphia but Zinc owns my heart!

  4. Oh my good gracious, what a stunning entry !!!
    I already love everything about it. Are you leaving the wallpaper in the dining room?

    1. I am definitely leaving that paper in the dining room, I know its not for everyone but I did fall for it!

  5. That home is beautiful and that gold still my heart...


  6. I cannot wait to see what you do with this beauty, Karolyn! I know that it will be beautiful.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  8. I would love to find something like this! It's perfect for when the kids start leaving because it's so pretty it wouldn't make me sad to leave my old home! Can't wait to see the rest! Love the kitchen and the entrance and everything about it!
