My husband and I just bought our first house. It was built in 1912 and has a lot neat character and charm. As you can see in the pictures we've already removed all of the wallpaper and ripped up old carpet. Unfortunately, the floors are not able to be refinished so we plan on replacing them with new dark hardwoods. I would really like to paint the trim and built-ins white to brighten up the space... and to be honest I have a bit of an aversion to the color of the oak. I think our style tends to be transitional.
We'd love to hear some feedback on what you all would do with our "blank slate"! The pictures are of the living room from many angles and in one picture you can see through to the dining room. The built-in in the dining room does have doors, they are just off and the glass is being repaired.
