My House - Columbus, Ohio - Part One

Barberry Lane - I've been meaning to post these for awhile.  This was my house in Columbus when I lived there (I've lived in Georgia and Florida since then).  These are the results of four years of hard work to transform the house into a warm and inviting retro haven.  We had hoped to send pictures in to Atomic Ranch magazine but never got around to it before we moved.  FYI, if you like mid-century homes and design you should definitely check the magazine.

The rear of the house with its fantastic trees, screened porch, and two-level patio.

This is from before the house was painted but it's the only photo showing the other end of the house and the way the roofline juts out to a point.

Patterned block wall.

Replaced the heavy wooden front doors with these glass ones and what a difference.

The wonderful stone wall of the entry (and fireplace in the living room) were one of the things that sold us on the house.  The great slate floors were another.

Bullet planter.

Up the steps to the Living Room.

Looking back towards the Foyer.

Lovely bay window and fireplace.

More to come...

  1. Papyrus? I love it.

    I guess I should not have expected anything less, but the decor is fabulous.

    I know you sent me pictures once, but the before the repainting exterior shot is the only one that seems familiar to me now.
