    I love the butter yellow cabinets & the pale green bathroom. I also like all the light from the windows.

    O-M-G. I would move in as is, shag carpet and all. That place is GORGEOUS. (though I hate to think how cold it is in Chicago winters with all that glass…)

    OMG, OMG, OMG! Sable, you have outdone yourself with this find! Gorgeous all around! The original details are amazing, and the furniture is just divine. And I really mean that. I think that headboard actually made me tear-up a bit!

    Not totally sure about the cabinet maker, but those look like the pulls I have on my Genevas.

    Wow, wow, WOW! There is nothing that I don’t like about this house. Normally, I am not a fan of yellow, but somehow it really works in that kitchen. Absolutely gorgeous!

    I have a friend who LOVES to go look at real estate, so maybe I can talk him into seeing this in the flesh. Gorgeous, especially those kitchen cabinets!

    Geez Louise, I didn’t take a good look at the headboard until now! It knocks me out!

    I say the heck with freezing cold Chicago winters (I’m used to them anyway, living across the lake from Chi), give me that house now!
