    Nice bathroom. I'm not a big fan of that period of architecture, it feels so heavy. But they did a nice job of lightening the mood. I've seen a lot of the heavy wood tones painted over and also a lot of wringing of hands over doing that but it really doesn't harm the wood and can always be reversed. But what they've done works well with their sense of the odd. And I'm sure townhouse living is the way to go with kids. I wonder how the kids like living there vs LA. They're young, though, and at that age adaptable.

    As expected, an eclectic pastiche of antiques and modern art. All that's missing is the traditionally shaped plexiglass chair and the clear crystal chandelier.

    Sidebar: Historically tin ceilings were relegated to kitchens, not dens, though I had one installed because I needed a dropped ceiling for access to plumbing.

    I loved the green shirt Patrick's husband was wearing.

    ^+1! Good call on the tin ceilings, which also were installed in saloons and barber shops, which gives at least some credibility to their use here. But, "eclectic pastiche" - cf. "wonderfully diverse collage" - is a kind understatement, to say the least.
