almost everything i love about this comes back to color. whites, blues and greys throughout with dark wood floors. it's very similar to the colors i dream of our house being. the use of white and grey painted trim is particularly eye-catching in its attention to details. it really makes me torn, since we've always wanted to do stained wood trim, but the painted white trim i've seen in renovated craftsman houses has me second guessing it!
i really love the spare but pop-y use of color. painting just the ceiling and the parts of the walls above the picture rail is a brilliant idea. it keeps the lines in the room still very clean and bright, without that boring or sanitary feeling.
i am also so impressed by all the detail put into the built-ins in every room. it really drives in the sense that everything has its purpose and its place, that this was meant to be a home and not a cookie-cutter house.
