As many of our Facebook followers know, we’ve been working on redecorating the south parlor at the Parris House, which is a classic twin parlor Federal. Just a couple of weeks ago our Tuesday group was overflowing the north parlor aka the hooking studio. At the time the “new” parlor was still in disarray during the painting and decluttering process. Next time we have more hookers than seats, we’ll have the option of flowing over in to this new room.
In my quest to take the house toward ruthless simplicity, the room is spartan, although I am still looking for just the right rug (the rug maker has no rug…) and a small coffee table. At this juncture, an object needs to be useful, be beautiful, or have a significant piece of my heart to stay in the house.
Here are some pics with captions…
Thanks for cyber visiting the Parris House and we hope you’ll stop by in person some day! Happy hooking. 🙂 – Beth
While Jen’s been visiting this week, she decided that the floors in the Parris House were video worthy. Here is her video tour of the creaky old floors in their full noisiness, since it’s winter. In summer, the floors swell with humidity and tighten up, but mid-winter it’s a creak fest here. Let’s just say we can’t even have stealthy pets let alone stealthy family members in this house.
We’re expecting another snowstorm too. This is what Tuesday’s blizzard looked like on the village green, Paris Hill Village. I shot this video while Jen and I were walking (staggering?) around in the storm.
