    My home now has its own facebook page, mostly because it is part of my job but it might be interesting for you as well.
    There I share pictures and videos of some of the tv shows that have been recorded there.
    Lots of Dutch stuff though;

    My building makes the New York Times

    Here's an article from last Friday's New York Times about my building. This guy is my next door neighbor, and his place as an almost exact mirror image of mine. Alex is a great guy, and it's going to be terrific having him as a next door neioghbor. And of course I've invited him to visit the Lounge.

It’s 90% original with a couple very high-end, midcentury upgrades in the kitchen, downstairs bath, and enclosed porch.

    And the garage:



    I don't know exactly how old, but there are handwritten fuel-economy figures written on one wall dated July 1914, so it’s old. And huge for its age.

    Well, it can finally be told: Last month we traded in our 1882 Victorian for a 1941 Cape Cod*.



    The interiors are mostly original with only slight 1990s redecorating. I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Retro Renovation blog admiring Mid Century Modest interiors. First up is a pink kitchen.

    *“Cape Cod” is the nearest we can come to an accurate description, but alternative suggestions are welcome.
