In both the living room and master bedroom, stacked block walls add interest through texture with a monochromatic, geometric accent wall.

    What a lovely house!

    I would like to mention for those who always wonder why real estate photos look a little “odd”, they use a wide angle lens that makes every room look gigantic, but also stretches things out and makes things look out of proportion.

    This home is absolutely beautiful, and I agree with Norma in that Joan Crawford is all over that living room! LOL! The green accents in the living room are so vibrant and fun. Another terrific Time Capsule home! I think that we can all agree that the privacy screens are as functional as they are eye-catching. The screens are definitely a great decorating idea for me. Last, but certainly not least, is that stunning view from every window…WOW!!! Thank you so much for sharing this home!
