    On the site before, thought I’d repost (did not sell since last post.) I linked the floorplan up top.

      First thing I did in my Galena, Illinois Victorian was pull up the dusty rose carpet! Now pulling down 1980’s wallpaper and more dusty rose – paint in the kitchen!

    I adore every single inch of the interior of this house.All of it. The woodwork looks pristine, new like it was just installed ! I would probably would take out some carpet, might strip the pantry woodwork. And the exterior paint.

      Good choice. Pink is only popular for a house color if you’re trying to make it look like a dollhouse.
      Not an authentic choice.

        I beg to differ. The pink color is authentic. I consulted a Sherwin-Williams’ paint chart (circa 1890s) before I painted my Indiana 1897 Queen Anne Victorian. I chose the color because Indiana and Illinois winters can be very gloomy in the gray overcast of winter. Pink is a much grander choice. My painted lady is not a dollhouse. Perhaps, the aqua painted front steps send off a hint of Miami, but that’s an easy fix. The kitchen floor made me smile. My kitchen is straight from the 1950s, complete with metal cabinets. If I was the new owner, I would keep this floor.

          Could be done tastefully yes. And Im sure you made your house look nice. And yes Pink is on some charts as well as salmon pinks that some houses had recommmend. However in all hundreds of periodicals, paint books, paint recommendations and journals I’ve read from he late 19th century as well as paint sample analysis done, I have almost never seen it chosen as a body color. Im sure it was done but certainly wasn’t a popular choice. If someone has evidence to counter that I would love to see. I am always into learning new things.
          Also I’m always skeptical of what people at stores claim was authentic to time periods. Most people regurgitate only what they are told without researching for themselves accurate history. I hear all sorts of myths and legends that grandparents have passed down falling into the ears of store employees.
          When I was painting my queen ann I was told gray with white trim was the most popular color of the 1880s. 100 percent false.
          Their head almost exploded when I told them I found 8 colors during paint sample analysis on my house when it was build.

    I love everything about this house, except the color, sorry pink is not a favorite of mine. But mainly for removing the carpeting and wallpaper and a fresh coat of paint, this house is move in ready! Everything that I would change is purely cosmetic. I absolutely love that the woodwork is largely intact!

      I agree! Just take off all the wallpaper, paint and replace the carpet with a hardwood that resembles all the original. I would also try to strip the paint off of the beautiful china cabinet in the pantry. Maybe some slight renovation in the kitchen, but I would try to keep the vintage look.

      Pink is pretty overwhelming, but it can always be painted to a less bold color. I’d do sage green with black/green shutters.

        I was thinking it would be great in a happy,faded daffodil yellow and the porch ceiling the lightest sky blue. And that rose carpet upstairs would have to go. Bring back the wood floors and opulent rugs.

      I would do pink for a Art Moderne house, with a darker version for the trim. More of a dusty pink pastel. With some plastic flamingos on the front lawn. The only style of house you can probably get away with it. We had some nice Victorians in a purple monochromatic scheme, not my style, but it worked. These bold colors have to be chosen very carefully, keeping in mind the style of architecture. Blue bungalows never work either.

        I totally agree. Bungalows look great with bold earth tones. I remember my neighbor painted his bungalow sky blue. Looked so weak on such a strong house.

      My wife wanted our bedroom to be pink, so I did this for her. She divorced me 18 months ago, & my beautiful house is gone. Sigh…

    I would have liked to seen the garage as it looks like it was originally a barn…. And yes, redo the pink exterior of the house…

    To each her own, I happen to like all the dusty rose. My house is a dusty purple. Lovely home (as are so many on this blog, my favorite way to spend a Saturday morning).

    It’s absolutely darling! A Queen Anne with turret painted pink! I love it 🙂

    I love every part of this house, except the furnace placed right in the middle of that great attic space. There are so many better options than to cut up a great space like that!

    Beautiful house.
    Interestingly, while this doesn’t look like a Sears model (to my very untrained eye), supposedly Carlinville has the largest surviving neighborhood of Sears catalog homes, funded by Standard Oil of Indiana. Least, if you trust wikipedia. 🙂

    Love, Love, Love the yellow kitchen with the 50’s floor and the tile bathrooms, would not change anything in these. Otherwise, pull up all the carpet, paint the outside a pale yellow with green steps/trim. And I don’t mind the Dollar Store across the street. There is also an eye doctor, a Hardy’s, a Mexican Restaurant and an IGA Grocery store on the same block. I would never have to drive anywhere very often as well as being able to sit on my front porch and be entertained by all the activity up and down the street, fantastic!
