Hi there, I'm back! Did you miss me?
Just kidding. I spent a lot of time practicing my portrait photography, and very little time on all the projects that need doing around the house. But c'est la vie.
I thought I would show you some photos I took of my dear friend Robin's house yesterday. I went there to take some photos of her and her Jack Russell, Rosie. But I also took the opportunity to snap a few photos of her beautiful home.
These images were all taken in her bar, which is a gorgeous paneled room. I had my 60mm lens on the camera, so I couldn't get any wide shots, but I thought you might like to see some close-ups of her furniture and accessories. I'll go back soon and get shots that show the whole room. :)
A few of of you may remember the red decanter with the hunt scene (above). I bought it at my favorite thrift store for Robin, who collects things with a fox hunting theme.
Robin's husband, Ken, is an electrician, and they have the most beautiful lighting fixtures. Another common theme in this room is stags, and hunting in general. Isn't this a gorgeous sconce? It is one of a pair that flank the center wall behind the bar.
Robin also collects antique tins, like this wonderful example that sits on a wooden tray on the ottoman in front of her sofa.
A collection of beer steins hints at Robin's Austrian heritage. The room is also filled with family photos, some taken in Austria near where her mother grew up. It is a warm and inviting room, perfect for entertaining.
And yes, I promise to bring you some shots of the whole room soon. :)
