I literally stumbled across the site, Period Properties the other day, and down the rabbit hole I fell! It's like flipping through a fairy tale and seeing how people - rich and poor, lived hundreds of years ago. The catch is people live there now, have tried to preserve the character of the home, and tell their renovating stories.
I could totally call this cottage my own :)
My mother would love this room!
So - what do you think? Could you live in a home this old and so historically decorated?
