I've been in this house before. Or at least, half a dozen local homes with the same floor plan. These narrow living rooms date to the 1920s, and have quirky built-ins, original moldings and floors that have seen better days but "are a crime" to update. Hogwash! Love the glass tile backsplash and wide window moldings and crisp paint palate with the lighter floor stain. What a fresh look that doesn't totally demolish the character of an old house! Love it.
