If you look closely, though, you'll see classic details like crown molding, wainscoting and stained glass over the windows.

This pristine pair of swivel chairs was passed down from Micah’s grandmother. They’re a perfect way to inject a little generational history into a young family’s home. Family heirlooms are always a good idea. You’ll notice that below the white painted crown molding is a white picture rail. In many older homes, the walls are plaster as opposed to drywall. Plaster is much harder and more difficult to repair; therefore, a piece of molding/rail is used as a surface to attach hardware and wire, and then your artwork to. Preservation is key in caring for older homes. The Stansells cleverly repeated the teal color on the drapery panels, but used white sheers on the window’s interior for semi-privacy while still allowing light in.
