A Renovation I’m Dying to See

I read yesterday that actress Michelle Williams has bought this HUGE historic home in Brooklyn, NY that is in dire need of a major renovations- and I for one can’t wait to see what she does with it!  This home is more grand than I personally would want for myself, but I love the insane architectural details and grand rooms.

Gotta get rid of that hideous siding and return it to white clapboard (in my opinion).

Look at that front door!

Now, the current decor is quite the eyesore- but can’t you see the potential?? Or can you not? It’s interesting that some people can visualize a room wiped of dated decor and see what it COULD be and some who cannot (and those people are always on HGTV).

AHHH! The moulding, trim, paneling… I die. I wonder who she’s hired to redo the place!

Remove all the decor and that huge plate glass mirror above the gorgeous fireplace and you have one hell of a formal living room.

That bowed window? GAH.

I’m not big on stained glass windows, but in this house they fit. That little windowed nook could not be more charming.

Hoping they blow out this wall and make this room one big kitchen?

Brace yourself for the round bed and lion in this room… :)

This fireplace built in is incredible.

I hope this charming room becomes little Matilda’s space :)

And speaking of Michelle, can we discuss the perfection that is her advertisements for Louis Vuitton? Perfectly styled.
