A New House (Rental)


Mudroom/Entry 


Dining room. 


Formal living room. The painting is the first thing I moved in. 

Kitchen. 

Kitchen nook. 

Office. 

Upstairs Master Bedroom

These are a few photos of our new house rental. 

Our little cottage by the river has been wonderful over the past four months. We've also especially enjoyed the company of the folks that we rent from and share the property with. Logistically however, the small space created some challenges for us, most specifically with the kitchen, playroom, living and dining area all being in one room. 

So we stumbled upon a nice historic Cape that was available, and decided that it was time to move to something larger that we could live more comfortably in for awhile. 

It will also be nice to unpack our storage unit. We still haven't found our printer! 
Or the charger for our video camera, 
or my Canon Rebel, 
or our little one shot....

We do know that they are somewhere that was very obvious for safe keeping.

Catherine,
This is such a dear place to imagine your family spending the winter - I love all of the fireplaces! What a lucky house to have such inhabitants!

Johane,
We bought replacement chargers but they are complicated. Three pieces to attach together in order to charge battery. So the originals are much better and we can't wait to find them. Best, Catherine

What a lovely house. Did I miss a post somewhere? Where exactly are you? Not exactly, exactly of course... :) I just can't seem to find out where you moved to. Are you still in the US?

kathy said...

Your new, old spot seems like it will suit you. Best wishes! Your lovely sense of humor was not wasted. I love it!

Traci said...

it is beautiful. such character. can't wait to see how your touches add to it.

Sunny said...

Oh dear...the infamous "safe place"! I hope you find everything. I can never remember what seemed like such a logical place at the time I put something there for safekeeping. I usually find it when I'm looking for something else!

Oh I love it ! I would like that house to live in now. My new house is not really my sort of taste in style and now that I am alone, your new rental would be great.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

What a wonderful home - can't WAIT to see how you decorate it, going to be awesome, I just know it!

Congrats, it's always so nice to ahve a new "canvas" in which to create and make nice, isn't it?

Kathy said...

I love this! Can't wait to see future posts. It would be fun to look in every nook and cranny. Happy nesting.

Such a charming house! Have fun moving in!

Susan said...

Catherine, I'm so happy you're blogging again and I can't wait to see what you do with your new cottage. Your style is so tasteful and I've turned to your previous home for decorating inspiration. Is this new home in Oregon, too? I can't wait to see the landscape photos because your other home had such beautiful scenery all around.

Corn in my Coffee-Pot said...

this little rental looks promising.
I'm sure in no time you'll have it looking like home! even if it's temporary... home is where you coral your electronics and all their cords. ;) Pat

Ashley said...

What character. Your rental reminds me of all the homes I grew up visiting as a child in New England. Enjoy this next phase in your life!

What a beautiful home. Love all the moldings, wood beams and hardware.

flwrjane said...

OMG those floorboards. And the colors of the trim are perfect, almost as if you had picked them out.

It's a beauty already. Look forward to seeing you live in it.

What a sweet place. I love all the Colonial details and the beams are wonderful.

My Little Bungalow said...

What a sweet house. Is it old? It looks Colonial. Have you moved to New England? I love the floors and the ceiling beams. How does one find such a charming rental home!

Dana McDowell said...

Where can I find a cottage like this?! Some much history, so quaint!!!!

Vintage Home said...

So very excited to hear more about your move & new home.
Thinking it will be as beautiful as your last!

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

This home exudes charm! Please post some photos after you make it your own. And I hate when I am so put things away for safe keeping, and then can't find them!

andy said...

Love it ! Love those fireplaces ! Have a wonderful day

Keeping It Cozy said...

What a lovely and charming place to call home for now!

Catherine said...

The Cape is early 1800's and yes, we are in New England.

What a rental!! Love the fireplaces, floors, windows..... Your things will fit in perfectly! Sorry if you already gave this information - but are you in New England?

Brooke said...

Beautiful! Love the fireplaces, will be perfect for fall and winter, it's a nice time to move! We moved into a rental on halloween before and it was nice to have a new space for the holidays!

Karen said...

It will be a lovely home for you and your sweet family. It's a shame it is a rental -- you would do great things with that kitchen. But in no time, you will make it a lovely home. Please share more pictures as you progress with decorating. God bless your family in this new home.

Dawna Motz said...

Oh my goodness!! I love this place you are going to "rent" I would be so glad to call it home!! Love the windows, the floors, the exposed beams,,,too much to list!! What does the outside look like? So cute!

Mary Ann said...

Catherine:

I am so excited for you and your family. I cannot wait to see how you decorate this house - your farmhouse was just beautiful and I am sure this house will be also.
I am sooooo glad that you are back blogging. I have missed you.

Linzy said...

Oh, unpacking would be a joy, right? I don't know how you lasted this long- I couldn't. And I'm sure you will find everything. I hate it when I put something somewhere that at the time I thought was realllly clever. The place is very cute. And holy cow that stove hood. I like it.

Dianne said...

I can't wait to see what you do with this. Your furnishing will be perfect for this style. I also love the gray paint they used.

Lady Courtney said...

OH MY! I know it's a rental, but wow, and the style gives your location away! Can't wait to see all your treasures in here! How are the children doing with the relocation? Hoping all is well!!! donna :)

the growers daughter said...

So incredibly charming!

Anonymous said...

I'm familiar with the very obvious place for safe keeping thing. That made me grin.

Very excited to see the new rental photos! Thank you for sharing them. Very much looking forward to more. I try to get excited about the modern, and it can be great, but those ceiling beams are delicious.

Take care, Em

What a beautiful home! That's what I wish my home looked like--all except for the brick vinyl floor. I laughed when I saw it. When we built a new house in the early 80's when we were first married, that same floor was in our kitchen! At the time, I really wanted a real brick floor.

Windlost said...

A charming home that I KNOW you will make exquisitely charming in no time. :)
(Did you tell us where you are exactly??)

WhiteWhispers2u said...

Oh it's lovely and I sure wouldn't want to part with that lil gem myself.Looks like your style though, hope you will be comfortable!

I know every time we move we loose our silverware and we know we put it somewhere safe we will be sure to remember,Lol

Do share pics when you are settled :) Thx for sharing

It is charming and seems to fit your aesthetic perfectly. Can't wait to see your touch on it.

Amy Meier said...

Oh my goodness! It is absolutely perfect. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Jen said...

Wow - I too love all of the fireplaces! Can't wait to see what winter looks like at your new place :)

The new rental looks perfectly charming! I'm sure you're loving having more space.

Thud said...

A great rental with some character...well done.

Joyce Wenger said...

How on earth did you find such a gem? I love love love it!

Linda said...

Brick vinyl kitchen floor. We had some of that too along with about 5 other layers, the history of non wood flooring. This is a beautiful house and I love how you are making it home.
