On My Wish List




















This book is on my wish list: Restoring a House in the City- A Guide to Renovating Townhouses, Brownstones, and Rowhouses-With Great Style. Talk about living the dream. I'd love some day to own a little (or big) pied-a-terre in the Big Apple and perhaps even restore it from the ground up. You know, bring a wreck back to its original shining glory. Yeah, you too?
Until then, I can't wait to flip through the pages of this tome and live vicariously, minus the dust, dirt, and tears, through those who've been there and are now living the dream.

That first photo is just dreamy. I'm going to keep a lookout for this book.

I don't think I have the guts for large scale renovation though.

You really do get some great collections of photos. I'm redoing my house (and garden). I'm still in the plaster/spackle stage, but these are lovely inspirations.

Hi Jess, your renovation sounds mighty exciting. I'm glad you've found some inspiration here, thanks for stopping by!
