inspired by a craftsman bungalow in silverlake.

i'm feeling really inspired by this craftsman bungalow in silverlake that apartment therapy featured today! it has so many details that we want to integrate into our home, and it's done in such a beautiful, eclectic yet cohesive way.

first of all, all the trim! the beautiful, chunky, craftsman trim. it's a major detail missing from our home that we are very excited to put back in one day, though i think we would go with stained wood trim, as opposed to painted trim. also, can you spot the pinball machine peeking in from the left in the image above? james has been talking about getting one for as long as i've known him. when i showed him this house tour, his exact words were craftsman/industrial/geek can work! needless to say, i think he loves it too.

another component we loved was the dining room buffet below the high, wide windows. our dining room already has windows like that, and we've been discussing buffet options from day one, so seeing this made us really happy.

i think we'll go more craftsman/industrial and less eclectic than this particular house. we want to pull in many more original craftsman features, with industrial accents (wood and metal are just such a great combination). i just love the feel of this house. the feel is definitely in line with what we want for our home, even if the exact details and choices are not the same.

one last thing - i love the bath/shower combo they have! we've definitely discussed how we could have a clawfoot tub without having to use shower curtains (we hate shower curtains!) and have even talked about maybe making the bathroom a full wetroom. the clawfoot in a wet area of the bathroom is so nice - i wouldn't be surprised if something similar shows up in our home in a few years...!

so yea, i'm feeling super inspired this morning because of this house. make sure you check out the whole tour over at apartment therapy for even more details (the beautiful yard! the geeky office!! so many beautiful houseplants!!).
