We join her now in the bathroom. . .
Cottage Lover was certain she had never seen a more romantic bath in all her life.
She imagined herself soaking in the claw foot tub, surrounded by velvet and candlelight; her nose tickled by lilac bubbles.
Cottage Lover marveled at how Artist Steve could merge elegance with whimsy in just the right measure.
The bath cabinets were outstanding.
Cottage Lover hated to leave the bath, but she did long to see more of The Enchanting Cottage.
Walking into the dining room was like stepping back in time. In fact, she felt she had been transported to Victorian Europe.
Oh, it was fantastical.
Fabulous ceiling detail.
And a most curious little pachyderm.
There were clocks everywhere.
Small clocks. . .
and tall clocks. . .
and a mantel clock.
Under the mantel stood a wood stove that separated the dining area from the living room.
It possessed ornate wood carving, and metal work.
The cottage was toasty warm, for the wood stove was very efficient.
Each piece of furnitue was perfectly sized for the space.
The upholstery was lovely.
Cottage Lover smiled because Artist Steve had a wonderful eye for mixing fabric patterns. She knew that he knew that the key is to make sure all the materials are in the same color family. This makes the room much more interesting.
Another grandfather clock stood guard in the corner, next to an amazing mirror.
Cottage Lover reckoned that Artist Steve was, indeed, very fond of timepieces.
Artist Steve had cleverly remodeled the living room ceiling in the most stupendous way by repurposing a satellite dish.
A beautiful stained glass window overlooked the front porch.
A gorgeous coat rack with mirror held Artist Steve's outerwear.
From the living room Cottage Lover walked into the master bedroom. It was small in size, but extra large in beauty.
Artist Steve's bed was breathtaking.
All hand made and carved by himself.
Cottage Lover heard Captain ask Artist Steve if the portrait of the gentlemen was a relative.
The artwork in between the molding was delightful.
But the pièce de résistance was. . .
the bedroom ceiling.
To be continued. . .
