Our House is named

“FAIRVIEW”

THIS house was built in 1880, after the house originally built upon the property in 1830,

burnt to the ground.
I think it is pretty amazing that in all those years, we are only the second owners!

  1. Wow, Lesli, your house is absolutely beautiful! Every room seems to be put together with lots of thought and joy. Your colors are so pretty and one room seems to just flow into the next. That is so cool, too, that you are the second owners of such an old house. Well done!

  2. I wonder all the time how your house sale is going. My son has a lovely home that just isn’t moving and we aren’t sure why. Best wishes.

  3. I love it all! How could you not love it? The old house is fabulous to start with but the way you’ve decorated in such a fun and fresh way just makes me smile. 🙂

  4. How come you painted over the pink in your dining room?? I found your blog through Google as I searched for pink living room. I love your house! It’s beautiful! I’m planning to paint over the SW ember glow. I would like to paint it a muted pink. Did you like your dining room in pink, or did you get tired of it?

    1. I LOVED the pink and never got tired of it. I Just like changing it up and I wanted to add lots of pink in the ART and upholstery – I think both would have been too much….all about balance with Pink.

Thank you for visiting My Old Country House...I’d love to hear what you thinking. Let me know in the comments. And Have a great Day!
