  1. I love that bathroom floor! I’m guessing it’s some kind of linoleum or similar — it looks credibly original, but it also looks pristine! (I didn’t realize I could be so moved by non-wood floor…) Kind of hoping it’s not original so I could potentially get some for myself…

      I noticed that too! It made me think about the currently ubiquitous HGTV inspired tile floors, which are cute enough but also immediately dated. How charming this one is in its authenticity.

      • You’re so right! This floor manages to be intricate, pretty, and yet also timeless. It’s somehow hard to imagine it going out of style, unlike the HGTV look! Can’t help wondering what the essential design elements are that make it that way… I think it’s partly the lower contrast — it’s a kind of muted gold and ivory color combination. But there must be more to it than that…

      That kitchen floor could very well be vintage. It’s a pattern called pebble mosaic and is still available in various colourways in linoleum and vinyl.

      • Oh, yes, I can believe the kitchen floor pattern is still available. I was actually thinking that may not be vintage, but it is possible. We were talking about the bathroom floor, though, which has a rather different pattern. 🙂

        But I suppose if the kitchen floor is actually newer linoleum/vinyl and in a similar condition, that could suggest that the bathroom floor is also newer. (And likewise if it’s original!)

    The birthplace of the Tennessee Walking horses and Doc Watson’s “Ole Hoss” guitar….
    this charming little town has a LOT of history!
    I don’t see much that needs to be “done” to this sweet little house, besides a vintage stove and some clean up…do you?

      Love Doc Watson and saw him play a few times, once just a few feet from him and Merle at a NY folk club. Just awesome!

      The house could be reacquainted with its Craftsman roots a little – earth tone colors and wood finishes.

    Love the porch!!! Loads of potential here – especially in the kitchen. Find an old iron sink with the drainboards and a vintage stove. DEFINITELY change the color scheme. I agree – colors more in line with the Craftsman era. And – of course – add a swing to the front porch and we’re set! 🙂

    Here’s another Wartrace beauty. Some of the “updates” are a bit dated, but the original “stuff” is oohlala! The basement is pretty cool, too.
