I have always had a weakness for Tudors. We had quite a few in the town I grew up in and my parents looked at several they considered buying over the years. I liked the exteriors the best because the rooms were often too dark and serious for me when we got inside.
This Tudor, which was built in 1928 and is featured in Traditional Home, looks surprisingly light and fresh, all decked out for Christmas. It was definitely not what I expected.
Lily has been asking me why I haven’t decorated my bedroom for Christmas, since she decorated hers with lots of lights everywhere, and a couple of little tabletop trees, and even a little stocking for our dog Maizie. The truth is that I’m exhausted from decorating all of the other rooms in the house and didn’t feel the need to do something in my room on top of everything else.
This pretty bedroom might change my mind, though…
