Tub in shower: Amazing Bathroom

How UNREAL is this bathroom? I love the huge shower with the tub enclosed in it. It is perfection: the subway tile, glittering mosaics, gorgeous listeo design around the perimter of the shower, and intricate window.

Believe it or not, this house is actually in King of Prussia! (& currently under contract).

I’m definitely saving this photo for future inspiration

The Real 'Philadelphia Story'

Seeing ‘The Philadelphia Story’ is on my list of things to do since every time we drive by the Hope Montgomery Scott estate in Radnor Twp- upon which the move and Audrey Hepburn’s character is based- he talks about. The Androssan estate has been in the news lately with talks of building homes on some of the land- but I was really curious about what THE home- the big house- looked like inside. After some digging I found this trove of Photos from 2012. Click the photo to view

Elfreth's Alley

Did you know that America’s oldest residential street, Elfreth’s Alley, is located in Philadelphia? This Saturday is the 2013 Elfreth’s Alley Fete Day. Purchase your ticket and step back in time with period characters who used to inhabit the street, and tour 12 of the homes- which are all still lived in today! I love historic houses (check out the Tenement Museum next time you are in NYC!!!!!!) so I can’t wait to check out these homes this weekend!

Rittenhouse in the late 1800s

I often pass by huge gorgeous old brownstones in Philadelphia and wonder what it was like to live there when it was a single family home- not apartments, a museum, a library… etc that is today. I’ve walked by the Stotesbury Mansion on Rittenhouse, built in 1870 many times and wondered about its history. Did you know that it was a wedding present for Thomas McKean, a descendent of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence? In 1890, Mr. Edward T. Stotesbury purchased the home as an addition to his adjoining residence with the press calling it the largest and grandest townhouse in all of the East Coast.
