The Cross House

…Will Follow

Today. And still more to follow.


A pair of floor lamps will follow.

The draperies for the curved windows will follow.

The right radiator will follow.

  1. This room is so welcoming and cheerful!! it just misses friends/family, drinks, snacks, talks and laughs 🙂

  2. I have to admit it is lovely. I couldn’t picture it the way you did. Very warm and inviting. What room will you be doing next?

  3. So many intriguing elements in that parlor! It practically starts talking on its own. I like the variety of seating shapes and options — all of which look inviting to sit on.

  4. Absolutely beautiful! I do wish that the curtain placement be a tad bit different. Would you consider shortening the rod so the side window trim would be visible????? I think it would be awesome to see the side trim.

  5. Ross, it really looks great…I have to admit that I doubted a couple of things during this process, but I guess I’ve learned my lesson about that, LOL! Everything in the picture looks like it belongs in the room. The combination of the architecture, the colors of the room, and the furniture, all remind me of the 1950s and 60s. At that time, many people still lived in the same houses that they had moved into at the turn of the century, and over the decades had made changes to their homes with new, modern paint colors, mid-century furniture, etc. I believe that you wrote once that you wanted the Cross house to look like a family home that had developed over a long period of time, and that is exactly what you have accomplished. Well done sir, well done!!

    • BTW, how about some pictures of the finished room at night? It will look totally different with the chandelier and lamps lighting the room. And a night picture from the front yard of the stained glass with the light shining through…

  6. I. Love. Everything. About. This. Room! The coffee table and the beautiful sofa make the room look so sophisticated.
