    Default A town house in Chelsea, New York

    The parlor floor of George Faresís late 19th-century town house has most of its original details, which were painted white. The rough pine floors were bleached and the rooms minimally furnished, to draw attention to the ornamentation.

    I'd take it for the ceilings and the French doors.

    It has an identity crisis. the modern furnishings/decor don't go with the tradition of the moudling/floors and architectural design.

    I'm kind of loving it. Sea salt is great for neti pots and what not. I'm not into the floating bathroom sink nonsense lately, I need storage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hidden storage.

    yes about the neti pots,etc.

    Also, they make scrubs and a lot of soaps out of sea salt, you could ostensibly use it to exfoliate.

    And yes about the storage! What is with the little drawer-less slabs lately? I need drawers, cabinets, something.

    I like the aboriginal paintings and the dark wood style tub, but the rest is too minimalist for me.

    i think it's a perfect example of how to mix different eras. i know some people think that if you have an old building with the original fixtures, you have to decorate in an equally traditional style but i think the beauty is in the mix.
