Get ready to fall in love with today’s historic Massachusetts home by Henley Design, located in Manchester-by-the-Sea. You’ll be smitten by the mix of old and new in this traditional home located in an idyllic setting.
Step into the pretty entryway with gray-blue paneling and newer botanical prints on the wall above. A simply wooden bench and hearth broom greet you while baskets provide a place for storing shoes.
The first of two dining rooms features black Windsor chairs with a simple wood table. A non-functional fireplace adds architectural detail, along with the built-in cabinets.
The casual, neutral living room sports a comfy sectional and bamboo blinds at the abundance of windows. A pretty landscape print adorns a simple wooden cabinet. The upholstered ottoman performs double-duty as a coffee table.
You’ll find plenty of wooden, antique pieces of furniture throughout the home. I’m enjoying the trend back to unpainted furniture.
Note the detail on the door trim.
A second dining room features a different style of Windsor chairs. Windows wrap the room allowing an abundance of natural light into the space. An exposed brick wall lends charm all its own.
Another view of this dining room shows off the built-in book shelves.
Love the banister in this historic Massachusetts home! It makes me want to add fancy brackets to my banister – and paint it a pretty color. The trio of windows is a nice architectural touch, too.
The bedrooms are kept simple yet pretty. I love all the windows in this house.
Looks like this bedroom has a diamond windowpane door leading out to a porch.
