Last weekend, Mr. P and I took a breather from real life and headed south an hour to Spring City, which has been designated as a National Historic District. They have a historic home tour every year on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. This year we went down on Friday and spent the night at the historic Spring City Inn.
The home above was the first we visited on the tour. It is meticulously restored and decorated by the well known local decorator, Scott Peterson.
The home is comfortable and cozy, and features original art, which most of the homes in the area include, due to the fact that much of the old town is inhabited by artists.
The kitchen feels very peaceful, and I overheard another guest say that it was a 'live in kitchen', because you would never want to leave it.
Next we head upstairs.
There are four bedrooms upstairs, this one, I believe, is the master. The other rooms are filled with beds, no doubt to welcome grandchildren when they come to stay and are made up with charming quilts.
I loved the framed crochet samples. They are lovely and simple.
When I came back down stairs, I noticed the finish on the floor in the dining room. I love the patches of paint that were low lying, and were left in the grain, under the finish.
The house is absolutely charming, and perfect beyond what I would have thought possible for a house built in the mid to late 1800's. I hope you enjoyed the tour.
