December 4, 2009The Laurium Manor Inn And a 1960’s Kitchen
So, it is time that I start posting about some of the stuff Tom and I have been doing this fall! During our trip to the UP, Tom and I went to the Keweenaw Peninsula and stayed at the Laurium Manor Inn. Well, actually we stayed at the Victorian Hall B&B, which is part of the Laurium Manor Inn’s little group of houses they have in their bed and breakfast empire. The houses are all really, really cool with tons of great period detail. Unfortunately, the period they are in is Victorian, which doesn’t really work for this blog, but it is still spectacular to stay there even if the renovations are ongoing and everything isn’t quite restored yet. One of the most unique parts of the house, which I can’t resist showing here, is the ELEPHANT HIDE wallpaper from the dining room in the Laurium Inn.
Creepy, huh? It was up in the dining room, so I had plenty of time to study it while we were eating breakfast. Bleh.
Anyway, the Laurium Inn was all Victorian, but the Victorian Hall had one section that didn’t fit in. The kitchen had been redone in the 1960’s, and the owners hadn’t had time to refurbish it yet so Tom and I got to see it in its 1960’s glory.
Nice cabinets, don’t you think? The hardware is unfortunate, but they were going for Victorian, so I will cut them some slack.
Original wall oven. Does anyone know they exact date of this color??
The original stove, for a period touch in the kitchen.
And here is an Art Deco light that was in the Butler’s Pantry. I ADORED this, so I had to include a picture.
Hope everyone is having a great Friday!!
